N.p. N.p., Circa 1960s. Vintage poster for a performance by jazz saxophonist Johnny Griffin at the Gyllene Cirkeln (Golden Circle) club in Stockholm, Sweden, circa 1960s. Text in Swedish, with a brief biography of Griffin, noting this is his first visit to Sweden, and he is accompanied by Jimmy Woode on bass, Ruphert Clemedor on drums, and Henno Tooming on piano.

Griffin and Woode both emigrated to Europe in the early 1960s, and played together on Griffin's 1963 album "Night Lady," recorded in West Germany, which also featured Francy Boland on piano and Kenny Clarke on drums.

Gyllene Cirkeln was one of the first proper jazz clubs in Sweden, operating from 1962 to 1967, and hosting a who's who of modern jazz players. Numerous performances were recorded there, released with the "... at the Golden Circle" appellation, including Ornette Coleman's landmark 1966 double album, "At the Golden Circle Stockholm."
