Terje Rypdal Concert

Henry Kaiser recently sent me a beautifully shot, great sounding video of Terje Rypdal playing with Elephant9. The video is not available on YouTube and is more Elephant9 than Rypdal (though he has a stellar moment here and there). In searching for available videos of him with that band, I found most were low quality, but I also found this video of Rypdal live in Oslo in 2015. This is essentially the same band I saw in New York in 2012 minus the trumpet. Ståle Storløkken Hammond on organ electric piano, synthesizer is from Elephant9. Paolo Vinaccia plays drums and hilarious samples. Terje Rypdal had his 69th birthday last month and so a belated Happy Birthday.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I have been vaguely aware of Elephant9 but had no idea of a Terje Rypdal connection. It is wonderful (and rare) to see him play. This was a treat. Thanks again. — TK
