“In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of the Golden Circle Club!” - Blue Note President, Don Was.
These recordings marked the beginning of Ornette Coleman's contract with Blue Note.
At The "Golden Circle" Stockholm Vol. 1 is the first installment in a two-volume set featuring The Ornette Coleman Trio performing at the Gyllene Cirkeln club in Stockholm. The two-night event features Ornette Coleman (alto sax), David Izenzon (bass) and Charles Moffett (drums). The ensemble delivers thrilling performances of “Faces And Places,” “Dawn” and “European Echoes.” The Penguin Guide To Jazz included both volumes as part of its “Core Collection” and gave both four star reviews (of a possible four stars).
Four stars out of five - "This influential concert alerted Europe to the expanding horizons of posy-bop jazz...showcasing Coleman's improvisation on the irrepressible "Faces And Places"...Significant stuff and by no means dauntingly esoteric." - Q
