The Train and the River: By Jimmy Giuffre

We recommend a recording that will appeal to all who have ever watched an American freight train rolling through a Wild West Canyon along side a fast-flowing river. This is as descriptive as ever music can get.

The Jimmy Giuffre Trio recorded his folksy composition ‘The Train And The River’ on Christmas Eve 1956. The trio consisted of the great acoustic guitar player Jim Hall and Ralph Pena bass. Giuffre plays Clarinet, Tenor and Baritone sax on this track.
