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'.
