2013 release. In 1965, after a long absence from the music scene, Ornette Coleman recorded a two-volume live album with innovative rhythms and sonorities at the Golden Circle, a Stockholm jazz club. This marked the beginning of Coleman's contract with Blue Note, representing a turning point in his career. Four renowned Italian jazz artists were inspired by that legendary live performance: Rosario Giuliani, Fabrizio Bosso, Enzo Pietropaoli, and Marcello di Leonardo. Together they formed an imaginary "golden circle," blending together their experiences and setting aside their preeminent roles to convey their extraordinary talent as interpreters and music makers in a singular band. This does not intend to be exclusively a tribute to Ornette Coleman and his music, surprisingly still current after 50 years, but aims to implement the strong urge to move closer to what Coleman termed "The New Thing." Apart from Coleman's famous songs (such as "Congeniality" or "Jayne," dedicated to his wife, poet Jayne Cortez) the CD is enriched with three original tracks, especially produced for this occasion, where these jazz artists undeniably manifest what Coleman constantly repeated: "This is our music."
