One of the most sublime Jimmy Giuffre albums of all time
– and a perfect realization of his piano-less/
bass-less trio style! The approach here is really revolutionary, especially for the time
– as the group simply features Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Jim Hall on guitar, and Giuffre on reeds – working with no other rhythm at all, and coming up with this incredible approach to music that's as breathtaking as it is groundbreaking! Notes hang in mid-air, slowly sliding around one another, flying freel
y from the players, yet still managing to swing in a beautiful way. The titles are a mix of standards and originals – but all tracks sound completely unique, with a sound unlike anything else we can describe – and titles include "Swamp People", "Lonely Time
", "Green Country", and "Travelin Light".
