Overview

After touring Europe in early 1965 with his trio, Bill Evans came back to the U.S., made an album with the Claus Ogerman Orchestra and departed again for Europe, performing first in Berlin and then in Stockholm at the Golden Circle club, known locally as the Gyllende Cirklen. Recorded on somebody's funky little taping unit during the nights of November 15 and 19, 1965, the music heard on tracks one through thirteen document exactly how Bill Evans sounded in energetic collaboration with bassist Palle Danielsson and drummer Rune Carlsson. Although the sound quality is far from optimum, the spontaneous magic of collective improvisation certainly comes across. Three bonus tracks were rendered down from a 1968 television broadcast with a trio of Evans, Eddie Gómez and Jack DeJohnette, augmented on tracks 15 and 16 by the CBS Orchestra, and by John Lewis on a second piano during Lewis' "Almost Blues." "Granadas" was written by Spanish pianist and composer Enriqué Granados (1867-1916). All of this rare stuff is quite intriguing, but some may object to the muddy and at times boxy sound quality of these archival tape recordings.
