Jimmy Giuffre 3&4 - New York Concerts 1965

69 posts in this topic

This spring a 2xCD set containing two 1965 concerts by Jimmy Giuffre will be released. Concert 1 is from Judson Hall 9/3/65 with Richard Davis & Joe Chambers. Concert 2 is from Columbia University 5/19/65 with Don Friedmann, Chambers, & Barre Phillips.

Not sure on the label or exact release date. I got this info from an Instagram post by Fully Altered Media and will try to link the photo of the CD later. This is terribly exciting news.

That is exciting news. There's a real dearth of post-Free Fall material out there. That trio with Davis and Chambers sounds very interesting.

The label is a new one called Elemental. It's Spanish, but part of a legit distro called Distrijazz that moves ECM, Tzadik, Clean Feed, Hat, et al.

Ok, I have some doubts that it's fully legit, but ok, I don't care, is there a link please? Innocent until proven guilty and/or ordered.

You're right, I can't be sure what the real story is until there is more info. It's all very tricky over there, the way they mix business with legit and bootleg labels alike. My fingers are crossed on this one .... I'll try to provide a link when one comes up.

Same reservations as Jim, but also fully prepared to carpe on this one.

Am I the only one that finds "Free Fall" unlistenable?

I'm interested. I wonder what the source is for the recordings and how they sound.

I sure don't listen to it often. Difficult going.

Ditto. Give me the trio with Jim Hall any day.

I love Free Fall (and the Verve material of the more-or-less same vibe). It's just taking Jazz On A Summer's Day and making it Clouds On A Winter's Afternoon. Same view, different scenery. Seasons change!

Different strokes. I call it hair-shirt music. It's more interesting for a ringside seat to watching a once-popular artist self destruct. The mysteries. YM probably will V.

Oh, you should hear the Soul Note albums (if you haven't), then. Happy Jimmy is back, only this time he's got something vaguely resembling Weather Report behind him. Didn't see THAT one coming!

The guy was the eptiomic marcher-to-his-own-drummer-er, he really was, especially in bands where there was no drummer!

There's a much-accomplished olde/wise/experienced guy around here who claims to have known Giuffre waaaay back in the day who says to blame it all on Wesley LaViolette. I take that with several grains of salt, but it just goes to show you that even some of the old guys were getting perplexed by Giuffre before some of us were even born.

Also my first thought.

If I read that Jimmy Giuffre's widow is receiving royalties, and if I read that the sound is good, I might go for this. Otherwise, I'll let it go.

Guess I'm a spoil sport.

Jimmy Giuffre's widow managed to buy a can of ravioli and two spoons due to the immense royalties that this set created. Really: what world do you live in? Or was this just an abysmal attempt at a joke?
