This is mostly dark, dreamy and experimental Jazz.

Terje Rypdal’s Odyssey: In Studio & In Concert is a very special release. It includes not only the complete Odyssey album (recorded 1975) on CD for the first time (restoring the long track Rolling Stone to its rightful place), but also a full disc of previously unreleased material on which Terje Rypdal’s Odyssey band is augmented by the Swedish Radio Jazz Group in a 1976 live performance of Rypdal’s suite Unfinished Highballs

Did you think the Norwegian fjords couldn't sing? Think again! This album is a triumph.


A masterpiece by the Norwegian artist Terje Rypdal ( ECM Label .Odyssey was my first acquaintance with the Artist .The combination of magical electronic sounds with heavenly guitar sounds opened for me a gate to a new world of music,the music on this cd divided into two styles, 1/ powerful Rock - Fusion, 2/ Ambient music with Heavenly guitar sounds .The music is stunning ! the sounds create hypnotic atmosphere with lots of beauty, there is melancholic atmosphere in the music ( Midnite , Adagio , Fare Well , Darkness Falls ) , the saxophone tunes add another layer of creativity to the music. Better Off Without You and Over Birkerot are great Rock -Fusion tracks . The last track is sad and beautiful ( Ballade ) , this track combines touching and beautiful saxophone melodies with amazing guitar solo,what a perfect way to end a great cd.If You like this album I highly recommend on Terje Rypdal albums : After The Rain 1976, Whenever I Seem To Be Far Away 1974 and Blue 1987 .
