Product description

Product Description

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!

Format: Audio CD
It is perplexing how under-rated Jimmy Giuffre is. He played in similar settings, at times, to that other great baritone sax player Gerry Mulligan, although Giuffre also played clarinet and tenor sax.

He used a number of settings but only occasionally with piano. His range went from, what ultra conservative jazz pundits like Wynton Marsalis call, real blues based jazz to more loose, less rhythmic free chamber jazz, of which Giuffre was a pioneer. This latter style of jazz became the staple of the German based, highly influential and successful ECM record label. Giuffre later recorded for that label with Paul Bley and Steve Swallow with whom he previously recorded his classic Free Fall album for Columbia.

There are many gems here that are worth checking out and I will not go through them here, I love The Train and the River from The Jimmy Giuffre 3 album although I have to say that the live version on the Jazz on a Summer's Day soundtrack album has a slight edge on the original.

This package is a fine tribute to a man who was a true great of jazz and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

This release covers two albums recorded for Capitol, 'Jimmy Giuffre' (1954) & 'Tangents In Jazz' (1955), and two from 1956 for Atlantic Records - 'The Jimmy Giuffre 3', and 'Historic Jazz Concert at Music Inn' (featuring Jimmy Giuffre, Pee-Wee Russell, George Wein, Oscar Pettiford, Connie Kay, Teddy Charles, Percy Heath, Herbie Mann, Dick Katz & Ray Brown).

As an additional bonus there are two other tracks, both taken from the 1957 Columbia LP 'The Sound Of Jazz', featuring Jimmy Giuffre Three, and Pee-Wee Russell / Jimmy Giuffre Quintet.

35 wonderful classic cool Jazz tracks in total on 2CDs. Too good to be true?

Avid Jazz have no access to any of the original master tapes and generally clone/copy all the music from other existing original CDs or good condition vinyl LPs.

The sound on this 2CD set lacks tone and sounds rather flat when compared to the Japanese Atlantic CD editions of the same titles.

Avid Jazz titles are generally cheap and soundwise the company tinker with the source by either increasing bass/treble levels, or dumb all levels down (as is the case here) making the great music sound rather dull & lifeless.

Misleadingly these albums are packaged claiming the discs have been digitally remastered for possibly the best sound ever. This is deceptive marketing in an attempt to disguise the fact it is pirated music issued on the cheap. As is the case with most or all CDs on Avid Jazz you get what you pay for.

I actively avoid purchasing any music that I know has been pirated,cloned/copied, and as such cannot recommend this, or any other CDs issued on this label.

It is hard to believe that such fresh sounding jazz is in fact 55 years old. Amongst the many beautiful sounds on all 35 tracks on the two albums in this set I liked the interplay between a cool Jimmy Giuffre and an erratic but inspired Pee Wee Russell on "Blues in E Flat". As all the best reviewers say "Thoroughly Recommeded".

At under 4 quid this has to be good value and I am happy to have spent that just to get the haunting track "The Train and the River" which I have only heard once since first hearing it as the opening soundtrack on the film "Jazz on a Summers Day" over 40 years ago. So why only 3 stars? The other tracks are just too polite, too controlled, too ultra West Coast for my taste. I shall play it now and again but I know it will never become one of my favourites.
