The trio of Jimmy Giuffre, pianist Paul Bley, and Steve Swallow on acoustic bass, through their previous recordings and live concerts in Europe, had reached the precipice of complete improvisational freedom. The leap came with Free Fall. What I feel to be the more revealing and revolutionary aspects of this album, however, are to be found in the five unaccompanied clarinet pieces. – Art Lange
With this release we like to celebrate Jimmy Giuffre at 100. (26. April 1921 – 24. April 2008).- ezz-thetics.
