This line up of the Jimmy Giuffre 3 recorded 3 amazingly important but generally ignored albums in the early 1960s: Fusion and Thesis (later re-released by ECM as Jimmy Giuffre 3, 1961. In 1963s they released Free Fall which was just way too far ahead of it's time. They played their brand of free jazz, which was not loud an brash but more sparse chamber jazz. This would later be very influential in shaping the European jazz movement championed and pioneered by Manfred Eicher's ECM Records.
They split following a gig in a bar where they each received 35 cents for their trouble. This was the last straw; they needed to eat after all.

In the early 1990's Giuffre revived the band and they had toured and played together on and off for four years when they recorded this gig. The levels of almost telepathic communication was as strong then as it had been in the 60s, the major difference in the 90s being that they were enthusiastically received by crows who knew the value of this genius group.

HASH(0x8d6a0d8c) out of 5 stars Worth getting 17 Aug. 2008
By Speedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The main difference between these sessions and the older, legendary ones by this trio, is that Swallow is using an electric bass... and maybe a deeper understanding of their own invention which is an eclectic, elegant yet always daring language of collective (not always the three of them but sometimes in duos too) improvisation. Excellent and always fresh sounding by three of the most intelligent guys in this style ((which they themselves helped to create).

HASH(0x8eae89d8) out of 5 stars Outstanding album! 16 April 2010
By ziryab - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is by far one of their best contributions, better than Free Fall and the 1961 releases in my opinion. It is extremely modern but always with a pulse that sometimes becomes almost like a swing. If you love modern jazz improvisation deprived of cliches, this is an incredible album for you. Highly recommended!
