Giuffre, Jimmy / Bob Brookmeyer / Jim Hall - Western Suite Western Suite
Jazz Used - LP SD 1330 Atlantic
Stunning 1960 Deep Groove Green Label Stereo Original In Laminated Jacket. This Trio Of Adventurous Musicians Perform Giuffre's Four Part Suite, Penned Especially For The Group. The Piece In Itself Stands As A Crowning Achievment In A Career That Included Discovering The Talents Of Steve Swallow And Paul Bley And Making The Revolutionary Recording "Free Fall" Three Years Later. Jim Hall's Playiong Is Dark, Funky And Ambiguous; Brookmeyer's Lines Were Played As Stage Settings For The Other Two Players To Dialogue And Narrate Against. Giuffre, Ever The Storyteller, Advanced The Improvisation Angle And Wrote His Score So That Each Player Had To Stand On His Own As Part Of The Group; There Were No Comfort Zones. It Swung Like West Coast Jazz, But Felt As Ambitious As Copland's Billy The Kid. The Record Is Filled Out With Two Other Tunes, One Of Eddie Durham's, "Topsy," And The Final Moment Of Mastery This Band Ever Recorded, The Already Classic "Blue Monk."
