• Jazz Hot Record of the Year 1972 • Stereo Review Jazz Album of the Year Part of ECM's vinyl re-issue programme on 180g vinyl of notable albums, Circle's Paris Concert is made available with a free download. Circle was a band on fire with creativity. Chick Corea and Dave Holland had just left Miles Davis's band, keen to explore all parameters of new music in an improvised context. Anthony Braxton, equally inspired by Stockhausen and Coltrane, brought in new directions from the AACM. Barry Altschul's resumé included extensive work with Paul Bley. Together they were, for a while, matchless. Corea called the Paris Concert (recorded 1971) the realization of a dream. Melody Maker: "Paris Concert is evidence that here was one of the most excitingly talented bands of recent years, for these 94 minutes of music simply burst with vigorous invention." Personnel: Anthony Braxton (reeds, percussion), Chick Corea (piano), Dave Holland (double-bass, cello), Barry Altschul (drums).
