180g Vinyl Double LP Reissue!

A true arbiter of the chamber jazz idiom before it even was one, clarinetist Jimmy Giuffre was brought back to vivid life in this much-needed ECM rescue. Engaging a then-acoustic Steve Swallow on bass and a gushing Paul Bley on piano in a twofold session of ruffled play for Verve, Giuffre brought his signature silken tone to an ephemeral trio whose tuneful interactivity made for loads of affirming music.

In a wonderful encapsulating essay, Steve Lake tells us that the group had by this point reached a state of free jazz that dove past the blaring expectations of its current fashion and headed straight into the instincts beating quietly below.

"...nothing short of a revelation musically...There are no corners in this music, no jagged edges, everything is rounded off, if not smooth, then at least warm -- no matter how complex the music becomes it has no air of academic elitism or dry didacticism about it, the emotions are transparent and expressed with understatement and grace. This reissue is perhaps, along with Free Fall, one of the most essential documents regarding the other side of early-'60s jazz...Giuffre didn't straddle fences; on Fusion and Thesis, he just walked through them." -Thom Jurek,
