Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1961 album from the Jazz great. Jimmy Giuffre's 1960 recordings were few and far between. The two live performances contained on this CD represent his only small group sessions made during that year. The first one (chronologically, the second on our edition) was taped on February 23, at a concert in Paris. On May 26, he participated on three tunes for a Shorty Rogers LP, and in August he made an on-location recording at the Five Spot in New York, which opens our CD. On both the Paris and the Five Spot sets, Giuffre is accompanied by the great guitarist Jim Hall, with whom he had worked on many occasions. While the Five Spot performance features the two musicians in a quartet format with bass and drums, the Paris set showcases Giuffre and Hall's mastery in a trio with bassist Milford Middlebrooks.
