"In October of 1956 "The J.G. 3" had its first rehearsal at Harry Jones' Studio in Hollywood. The personnel was the same as it is on this record: Jim Hall, guitar; Red Mitchell, bass; and Jimmy
Giuffre, clarinet, tenor and baritone. Jim Hall has been with "The J.G. 3" for the past two-and-a-half years. Red Mitchell was not able to continue past that first rehearsal, but was finally captured
for 7 Pieces." - Jimmy Giuffre from the original liner notes.
