A little more Giuffre
There is a lot more Jimmy Giuffre available that I had realized, back when I acquired his Free Fall album. Today I purchased The Train and the River, and The Jimmy Giuffre Clarinet. The former is priceless. Pure feeling woven through brilliant skill. I am playing the first two cuts off the album: the title cut, and 'Elephant'. Both are superb. The latter is a conventional blues done down right. Kiyoshi Tokunaga is on bass, and Randy Kaye on percussion.
The latter seems to be a series of small combos. I am playing 'The Quiet Cook'.
