In this second article about my favorite music, I'd like to write about Jimmy Giuffre. I pretty much like all his records. But one of them is quite remarkable since he is going new, different ways: Tangents in Jazz
A very early album from him, released 1955 on Capitol. This album is quite experimental. What is so unusal about it is the absence of an explicit beat. Although the quartett has a bass and a percussion set, these do not provide the rythm or beat as usual. The entire album provides full attention to the notes and phrases and the percussion and bass participate in this.
