Multi-instrumentalist Jimmy Giuffre and his 3: (with Jim Hall and Bob Brookmeyer):"Trav'lin' Light"

A most unique ensemble...a real "living room band". The Jimmy Giuffre 3. Mr Giuffre on clarinet and tenor and baritone saxophones, Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone and Jim Hall on guitar. This unit only made one recording and this is it. Giuffre was a wonderful musician/composer/arranger who explored every type of music from straight-ahead Jazz to the outer reaches of the avant-guard and free-form music. He wrote for large and small ensembles. This band explores Giuffre's "folk/pastoral/blues" stage and the music this little group makes is complete in itself. Four Giuffre compositions are featured
plus some unlikely "standards". The title track is perhaps the closest tune to a pop standard and it was written by Johnny Mercer. The other tunes are a couple of campfire tunes...."Show Me The Way to Go Home" and "California, Here I Come". This is a lovely band and the music could only be played by people deep into the Jazz language. "Trav'lin' Light with the Jimmy Giuffre 3 is a refreshing experience.
