The Gyllene Cirkeln [Golden Circle] jazz club that was the hub of Stockholm’s jazz scene from 1962 until it closed in 1969. The club served as a center of the underground music scene in Sweden, frequently hosting American and international musicians during its tenure. Famously, the Rolling Stones once played there after hours in 1970, and Ornette Coleman, Bud Powell, Cecil Taylor, Jack McDuff, and Pink Floyd all released live recordings from the Golden Circle.
