Newly discovered 1965 concerts by the late clarinetist and saxophonist Jimmy Giuffre will be released June 10 by the new label Elemental Music, a partnership between American producer Zev Feldman and the Barcelona-based distributor Distrijazz. According to a press release, the label will specialize in releasing newly discovered archival or our-of-print jazz. New York Concerts, by the Jimmy Giuffe 3 & 4, is described as a two-disc set offering “a rare and revelatory glimpse into” what the release calls Giuffre’s “discographical dark period,” the decade between 1962 and 1971 which went largely undocumented.

“These recordings are the latest treasures to be unearthed from the seemingly inexhaustible troves of producer/engineer George Klabin, who in the last few years has also released essential ‘lost’ recordings on his Resonance Records imprint by Bill Evans (Live at Art D’Lugoff’s Top of the Village Gate) and the forthcoming Charles Lloyd (Manhattan Stories),” says the press release.
