Jimmy Giuffre set forth with these 1954-1955 sessions a bold new form for improvised music. In all, it was touted by many influential figures as one of the most stimulating contributions to first-rate modern jazz literature. In these, his first recordings as a leader, Giuffre shows a fine versatility, a communicative emotion and the ability to swing that made him a respected soloist on tenor, baritone and clarinet. Fifty years later, theres still some fascinating listening enjoyment here, and there will be for quite a while to come.
