Jimmy Giuffre & Jim Hall Trio: Complete Studio Recordings (CD: Phono, 4 CDs)Jimmy Giuffre & Jim Hall Trio: Complete Studio Recordings (CD: Phono, 4 CDs)
This outstanding 4-CD box set contains the complete studio trio recordings of Jimmy Giuffre and Jim Hall. The first track of the current edition, (“Gotta Dance”, recorded on December 3, 1956), is in fact their first collaboration ever and the start of many future collaborations.

Includes the complete original albums: “The Jimmy Giuffre 3”, “Trav’lin’ Light”, “The Four Brothers Sound”, “Western Suite”, “7 Pieces”, “The Easy Way” - plus 8 tracks which never appeared on LP.

As a bonus, there are two unaccompanied Giuffre tracks from the same sessions and a batch of rare live trio recordings, including “Song of the Wind”, which appears here on CD for the first time ever.

The third voice of the trio was usually a bass (many bassists alternated on their trio projects, including Ray Brown, Ralph Peña, Jim Atlas, Red Mitchell and Wilfred Middlebrooks) or a trombone (mostly Bob Brookmeyer, who sometimes switched from the valve trombone to the piano).

Jimmy Giuffre: Four Classic Albums Plus... (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
Born in Dallas Texas in 1921 Jimmy Giuffre started his career arranging for Woody Herman's big band. His main instrument was the clarinet but he also played the flute, tenor and alto saxophone. Acknowledged as one of the leaders in the West Coast Cool Jazz scene of the 1950's AVID Jazz here presents four classic Jimmy Giuffre albums on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. `Jimmy Giuffre'; `Tangents In Jazz'; `The Jimmy Giuffre Three' and `Historic Jazz Concert At Music Inn' display Giuffre's style which moved from what he called `blues based folk jazz' to a more intimate and rhythm less form of free jazz dubbed `chamber jazz'. A style that would be taken up later and with incredible success by the German based ECM label. In fact Giuffre would later record for them with Paul Bley and Steve Swallow.

As tribute to Giuffre who died two days short of his 87th birthday on April 24th 2008. AVID are proud to add his name to their growing AVID Jazz catalogue. All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever! (AVID Entertainment)

Jimmy Giuffre: Four Classic Albums Plus... (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)


Jimmy Giuffre: Three Classic Albums Plus (CD: AVID, 2 CDs) Jimmy Giuffre: Three Classic Albums Plus (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
AVID Jazz here presents three classic Jimmy Giuffre albums plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. For our second foray into the musical world of Jimmy Giuffre we have selected three great albums “7 Pieces”, “Ad Lib”, “In Person” and three tracks from “The Four Brothers Sound” (with more to follow on a future release).

Appropriately seven Giuffre compositions appear on “7 Pieces” which features Giuffre on clarinet, tenor and baritone sax, Jim Hall on guitar and Red Mitchell on drums, with legendary recording engineer Bones Howe at the controls. The Jimmy Giuffre 4 line up for “Ad Lib” features Giuffre on clarinet and tenor sax, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Red Mitchell on bass and Lawrence Marable on drums. Here Jimmy Giuffre is featured on, (in his own words from the original liner notes) “a blowing album” where he is found as an…. “unapologising and unprotected improvising soloist”. Again in Giuffre’s words…..”now all six tracks make complete statements of my blowing as of the date”(1959). Again further quoting about his band…”I would have to search very far to come up with a more perfect rhythm section for my purposes here…….or actually most any purpose”. “In Person” features the Jimmy Giuffre Quartet with Giuffre on clarinet and tenor, Jim Hall on guitar, Buell Neidlinger on bass and Bill Osbourne on drums, recorded live at the Five Spot in New York, August 1960. The band recorded all night with tracks like “What’s New” being laid down at 3 a.m in the morning when the only applause was coming from the engineers, the audience having long departed! For the first time on record you can also experience the “new” sound of Giuffre’s clarinet blowing more “out and more hard”. We conclude with three tracks from “The Four Brothers Sound”. On this album Giuffre multi-tracks the sound of four tenors, accompanied by Jim Hall on guitar and Bob Brookmeyer on trombone.

All three albums plus have been digitally re-mastered. (AVID Entertainment)
