5.0 out of 5 stars See my review for Vol. 1, 26 Mar 2009

This review is from: The Ornette Coleman Trio At the Golden Circle, Vol. 2 (Audio CD)
As with At the "Golden Circle" in Stockholm, Vol. 1 this is a very well recorded album of some of Coleman's best work.
In Vol. 2 on the first track Coleman plays trumpet and violin with his own personal kind of virtuousity, which perhaps makes this an even more essential purchase than Vol 1. Yes, in a convential sense he "can't play", but not that he lacks skill, just that his efforts are channelled towards the unique possibilities of the instruments.
The other 3 reissued tracks feature Colman on sax, and then these are re-stated in order again with 3 alternate takes that represent an excellent album of Coleman's sax lead trio in their own right. Whether it makes sense to listen to the whole thing in one go or not shouldn't be an issue when deciding to purchase, it's always possible to save the outakes for another day, they're certainly different enough to the originals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ornette Coleman's underrated trio in superb form., 30 Nov 2012

This review is from: The Ornette Coleman Trio At the Golden Circle, Vol. 2 (Audio CD)
I was lucky enough to see the UK debut of this trio at the legendary Fairfield Hall concert on August 29, 1965 (Now available on CD as 'The Croydon Concert').
The music on this CD recorded at the 'Golden Circle', Stockholm on December 3/4, 1965 comes close to the brilliance of the trio's performance at that Croydon gig.
Ornette's alto playing is superbly melodic, David Izenzon is imaginative on arco and pizzicato bass while Charle Moffett is a hard-swinging and boisterous drummer.
With good sound quality for a live recording and 3 alternative takes giving 78 minutes playing time, this marvellous RVG Edition(2002) is an ideal introduction to the music of Ornette Coleman.
