With the release of JIMMY GIUFFRE's
'7 CLASSIC ALBUMS' buyers get the chance to get a lot of music for a really cheap price.

But Amazon, at the time of review have not given a list of the classic albums or the track listings.
So this listing may help you see which tracks are on the CDs.

The Real Gone Jazz label has garnered some really good reviews for sound quality.
The digitally enhanced sound is a good indicator but for a proper review I really suggest you read other, more knowledgeable people's reviews.
For example an America reviewer on Amazon USA has really panned the sound transfer.
So my advice is read the review and make your mind up.

The collection is on 4 CDs encased in a double wide jewel case.

As always if you see any typos add a note and I will correct and credit you with the correction- just add a comment......

The albums are
Jimmy Giuffre 3 ,
The Music Man,
Travlin' Light,
Western Suite,
The Easy Way,
Fusion and
Thesis.

If I had been able to play all four CDs from beginning to end I would have given this CD set five stars. Jimmy Guiffre is a revelation to me and I was listening to CD #3 when I was emailing a friend to say what a quality set this was and how amazingly Jimmy played. The set had Jimmy with Jim Hall and in other combinations and I was just getting on to the amazing recordings with Paul Bley and Steve Swallow which literally are years ahead of their time in conception and performance. But unfortunately disaster struck when I was playing CD #4. The final two tracks are unplayable, they skip, stall and then stop; even when played on two other CD players. I have cleaned the CD with a soft cloth and checked the timing and there is 70 minutes of music where 80 could fit on CD. So unfortunately I have to assume its a manufacturing fault. So while 95% + of the set is faultless and thoroughly enjoyable, the quality of the last two tracks on CD#4 leave me wanting more. What a pity!
