By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 April 2013
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

The tracks are

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Giuffre as leader in mostly 1958, with some earlier and later albums 28 Sept. 2013
By Mike Tarrani - Published on
First I want to address the sound quality. This set is anything but needle-drop transfers. In fact, the fidelity is more than sufficient to my ears and there is evidence of remastering and remixing efforts to make this set worth owning. Audiophiles will turn up their noses, and if you want the best you will need to track down the vinyl gems that cannot be duplicated on CD.

The media is of decent quality and I have yet to get a dud from Real Gone Jazz. If anything their quality of both media and sound have steadily improved over the years that I have been purchasing these sets.

You get the seven albums spread across four discs. Documentation is sorely lacking, but I have tracked down the basic information and have included it below. All of the albums are as originally released and are missing the bonus and alternate take tracks of reissues and re-releases. In most cases the source albums to which I have linked below have sound samples so you can get a feel for the music. In fact, the sound quality of the CDs in this set are at least equal (and often exceed) the quality of the samples to which I have linked, so you will get an idea of that as well. Please refer to the track list on this page as you read my summary information. Here is what you get:

The first nine tracks comprise the tracks originally released on the album titled The Jimmy Giuffre 3 (US Release) that was recorded for Atlantic in recorded in Los Angeles on December 3 and 4, 1956. Giuffre on clarinet, and tenor and baritone sax accompanied by Jim Hall on guitar and backed by bassist Ralph Pena.

Tracks 10 through 20 are the album titled The Music Man (US Release) that was recorded for Atlantic in NYC on January 2, 3 and 6, 1958. The ensemble consisted of Giuffre, Al Cohn and Eddie Wasserman on tenor sax, Sol Schlinger on baritone sax, Bernie Glow, Phil Sunkel and Joe Wilder on trumpet, and a rhythm section compprised of Wendell Marshall on bass and Ed Shaughnessy on drums.

Tacks 21 through 28 comprise the album titled Trav'Lin Light that was recorded in NYC for Atlantic over the course of three sessions: January 20, 21 and 23, 1958. Giuffre is on clarinet, tenor and baritone saxophones, accompanied by Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone and Jim Hall on guitar. This is the same line-up that would be immortalized in Bert Stern's documentary of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival titled Jazz on a Summer's Day.

Tracks 29 through 34 are the album titled Western Suite that was recorded for Atlantic in NYC on December 3, 1958. Giuffre is on clarinet, tenor and baritone saxophones, accompanied by Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone and Jim Hall on guitar.

Tracks 35 through 43 comprise the album titled The Easy Way that was recorded for Verve in Chicago on August 6 and 7, 1959. This album features Giuffre on clarinet, tenor and baritone saxophones, backed by Jim Hall on guitar and Ray Brown on bass.

Tracks 44 through 52 were recorded for Verve in NYC on March 3, 1961 and released on an out-of-print (at the time of this review) album titled Fusion. This features Giuffre on clarinet backed by Paul Bley on piano and Steve Swallow on bass. This and the follow-on album recorded for Verve by the same group on August 7 on 8, 1961 can be heard on a compilation titled 1961. The follow-on album titled Thesis comprises the final tracks in this set.

I was hesitant to purchase this Real Gone Jazz collection based on the only review for this item...but I have ten other Real Gone Jazz releases and have been satisfied with the sound quality on all of why would this one be different?.....I risked the ten bucks which includes shipping....and Im glad i did..this is a great introduction to Jimmy Giuffre for a great price....the music is great and i am satisfied with the sound quality!!!...I am recommending it....Real Gone Jazz is a great way to explore many leading jazz artists from the past fifty years at a bargain price...

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best of Jimmy Giuffre 15 Feb. 2014
By W. Rambo - Published on
Great bargain for the price. Satisfactory sound quality. Too bad there isn't more information on the compositions, personnel, etc but a little research can reveal some of that. Worth 5 stars if you are a true Giuffre fan; I enjoy his music, but I'm more in the "4-star category". Still worth the investment.

1.0 out of 5 stars from scratchy albums 26 Sept. 2012
By Wes Marshall - Published on
Verified Purchase
Don't make the same mistake I did. I thought I saw an opportunity to fill in some holes in my collection and this collection by Jimmy Giuffre had four albums on it I didn't have. Instead, these are garbage transfers from some awful cheapo turntable directly to a CD. I don't know who this company Real Gone Jazz is, but Beelzebub must have a special place waiting for them down below. This is nothing but a rip off too us and to the artist's memories. Don't buy these things. They are awful. I wasted my money. Don't waste yours. Real Gone Jazz, whoever you are, you should be ashamed.
