In 1956 Jimmy Giuffre went out on his own, forming the Jimmy Giuffre 3 with guitarist Jim Hall and bassist Ralph Pena (later Jim Atlas). Giuffre had a minor hit with his recording of "The Train and the River," a song that he played during his notable appearance on the 1957 television special The Sound of Jazz. In 1958 Giuffre had a most unusual trio with valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer and guitarist Hall (no piano, bass or drums!), appearing in the movie Jazz on a Summer's Day.

The music on this CD, taken live from the "Stars of Jazz" KABC TV-show and from the Newport Jazz Festival, is for enduring value, and fully demonstrates the talented writing of Jimmy Giuffre. He has always been an intensely stimulating player.
