Terje Rypdal – Odyssey in Studio & in Concert

Terje Rypdal (Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Synthesizer, Soprano Saxophone), Torbjørn Sunde (Trombone), Brynjulf Blix (Organ, Synthesizer, Electric Piano), Sveinung Hovensjø (Bass Guitar) and Svein Christiansen (Drums).

Streaming on Qobuz (96/24)… after hearing that Terje had a new album being released in September, curtesy of @Lontano over in the ‘Manfred Eicher and ECM’s amazing recording’ thread’, I thought I would take out this fantastic release from 2012 out for a spin! This is a 3 CD, 2:35:12, fifteen track, journey with Terje and this very talented quintet of musicians! Sounding very, very sweet…

I’ve got that album and listened to it a couple of times recently. I know what you mean - his recent solo work seems to be quite low key with less of his trademark catchy tunes. His recent albums seem to be very much a family affair as well, with his two sons and wife contributing to them. By coincidence, I listened to a couple of them earlier today - Out Of Silence and Dizzy Heights and I was a bit underwhelmed.

This box celebrating Odyssey was released in 2012 and the third disc of a concert added to this release. Originally the album came out on vinyl in 1975 (without the concert) but when released on CD for the first time in 1988 they could not fit the last track Rolling Stone onto the CD so left it off. A big miss for many. This box fixed that problem many years later.

I am going to play one of my favourite Terje albums, If Mountains Could Sing from 1995…

Peter Gabriel - Shaking The Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats, although a best of, this collection boasts a brand new song ( as of 1990 ), a couple of remixed tracks with new additions and other tracks feature elements not heard in their normal form on the original albums.

Welcome back @dave-marshall - you may like to know that the Alabamas have just finished recording their new album. Ese and Sheena contributed backing vox. It’s sounding good, a return to the style of their first albums IMO. As soon as I have a release date I’ll let you know.

Chelsea hotel. Great album. I seem to remember there was a wonderful line that Janis said to Leonard about her preferring handsome men but in his case she was prepared to make an exception.:slightly_smiling_face:

La Chapelle du Roi - Tellis: Spem in Alium

Together with the Huelgas Ensemble on of the best versions of Spem In Alium.

Even if you do not like classical music, it is hard not to be moved by the beauty of this polyphonic piece purely produced by voices.
