The Jimmy Giuffre Clarinet, Jimmy Giuffre’s third album as a leader –following Four Brothers (1954) and Tangents in Jazz (1955) – was also his first LP for the Atlantic label and his first project entirely devoted to the clarinet, an instrument which, as both the original liner notes and the Down Beat critic stated, Giuffre hadn’t fully mastered yet. For this reason (which forced him to play mostly in the lower and middle registers of the horn), and for the whole arranging concept of the album, it was quite an experimental project. In fact, no two of the eight tracks present the same instrumentation or personnel, and when the same musicians play on different songs, they usually perform on different instruments. Like the last track on The Jimmy Giuffre Clarinet , Giuffre’s 1958 album The Music Man also featured a nonet, but this time throughout the entire album. This was, of course, a jazz version of the music conceived by Meredith Willson for the Broadway hit The Music Man.
