CD Reviews

Giuffre deserves to be recognized as a master in Jazz
Michael R. Lachance | Maine, USA | 08/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jimmy Giuffre seems to have become an extremely overlooked and unfortunately forgotten master within his genre. While Jazz underwent a very vast transformation during the late 50's and early 60's (only Duke Ellington survived musically, from the old school) Giuffre and his small group were at the forefront of this revolution. Crafting Jazz in ways never before even thought of. In 'The Jimmy Giuffre 3' we find Jimmy teamed with Jazz guitarist Jim Hall and Bassist Ralph Pena. The music has no piano, no drums and no vocal. It stands strongly without and reminds us that their talent is more powerful than any rhythm section. This music is transcendental and evokes a purity that is nearly unrivalled. By all means if you get the opportunity to watch the film 'Jazz on a Summer's Day' you will see Giuffre at work in the opening sequence. Im dumbfounded however, that so much of his work is so hard to come by. In addition to this 1957 release, the 'Western Suite' CD is just as amazing. The 'Western Suite' (released in 1958) features the same group as seen at Newport in 1958; Giuffre, Jim Hall on Guitar and Bob Brookmeyer on Valve Trombone. Unfortunately it is only available as an import. Please do yourself a favor and hunt down a copy, either here on ... or on the other competitive ... music stores. Both these Giuffre works should be a requirement for any true Jazz Collection."
Underrated
Matthew Solodow | Ft. Worth, Texas | 11/23/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is truly unfortunate that most music lovers do not know who Jimmy Giuffre is. He and his trio are one of the most underrated groups in music. His "15 minutes" took place in the wonderful film "Jazz On A Summer's Day" as the opening performer at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. This CD is cool jazz at the same artistic level as Dave Brubeck's "Time Out" or Miles Davis' "Kind Of Blue". It should certainly be in any jazz lover's collection. The multi-instrumental talents of Giuffre with accompanyment from Jim Hall's guitar and Ralph Pena's bass is a treat."
Something a little different
Stalwart Kreinblaster | Xanadu | 12/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are in a rut listening to the same old bop recordings or tired sounding renditions of standards - give this disc a try. I think this trio has a very unique sound, and they go in some unconventional directions. I am very impressed with Jimmy Giuffre and his work with small groups. Jim Hall as always has that perfect tone that so many guitarists search for...."
