I started Guitar Moderne, in part, because I was spending an inordinate amount of time on the Internet searching out videos of modern guitar players. I thought the time could be put to good use if I shared them with like-minded guitar fans. Recently, a raft of videos has surfaced featuring Terje Rypdal with his various historic bands. I offer them to Guitar Moderne readers as a holiday gift, with the thought that many of you are off work or out of school for the week and might have time to watch them. Enjoy.

More Rypdal than you can shake a Strat at! Cool compilation, Michael!
Thanks for sharing these.
I have seen a couple of them but not all.
I’m a huge fan of Reje and collect (or at least try to see and hear) everything I can.
Thanks for the Christmas present.
When I was first exposed to ECM label music in the late 70s, I was all in. The roster of artists was rich with inovation, and it was all framed in an expansive yet minimalist production aesthetic. Of all of the great guitarists to emerge from that scene, Terje Rypdal was the one who impacted me the most. Something about his sound, note choice, and connection to rock and blues, just floored me. Thanks for posting these gems Michael and happy Holidays
