New York Concerts: The Jimmy Giuffre 3 & 4 is a 2014 live album by saxophonist and clarinetist Jimmy Giuffre recorded on May 19, 1965, by Zev Feldman of Elemental Music. Zev Feldman released a designed two-CD set entitled Jimmy Giuffre 3 & 4 New York Concerts. In each disc, each concert is recorded with informative booklet containing rare photographs and essays by Feldman, Giuffre's widow Juanita, the engineer George Klabin, guitarist Jim Hall, pianist Paul Bley and writers Phillip Carles and Bob Blumenthal. The album contains sophisticated yet loose or free extemporizations which point out intriguing and unique Giuffre compositions. In addition, his interpretation of altoist Ornette Coleman's "Crossroads" features his agile, resonating clarinet spontaneously provoking by its rise and fall over bassist Richard Davis' fast, con arco phrases and drummer Joe Chambers' beat clusters.
