Recorded live at Bergen’s Natjazz Festival in May 2009, Crime Scene is a powerful and exciting addition to Terje Rypdal’s ECM discography. Although the Norwegian guitarist/composer has written often for orchestras or chamber ensembles – see, for instance, his Undisonus, Q.E.D., Double Concerto and Lux Aeterna recordings – collaborations with jazz big band have less ...

Terje Rypdal's recordings offer the listener an astounding array of styles - ranging from straight-ahead jazz played in small-combo settings to solo outings to mind-bending improvisations to orchestral compositions, and all points in between. His composition and playing and arranging are always tasteful and excellent, and the musicians he selects to execute his works are consistently first-rate. BLUE is no exception, falling into a trio of albums featuring roughly the same personnel, The Chasers - Terje on electric guitar (also adding some keyboard touches on this recordings), Bjørn Kjellemyr on electric and acoustic basses, and Audun Kleive on drums and percussion. The same players appear on Terje's previous album, CHASER, and on THE SINGLES COLLECTION (with the addition of Allan Dangerfield on keyboards). This is one of those delightful instances of musicians being so sensitively attuned to each other that they literally perform as a unit, delivering some astonishingly powerful and well-executed performances.
Opening with the short intro track 'The curse', then moving deftly into the powerful 'Kompet Går', the set takes the listener through a breathtaking experience featuring both hard-edged and gently beautiful arrangements. Terje's guitar is the only 'lead' instrument in a traditional sense, but the basses and drums of his bandmates are equally in play here. Listen to the funk-driven string-snapping and sliding chords produced by Kjellemyr on 'Kompet Går', and the incredibly precise percussive bursts from Kleive on the same track - they set the stage nicely for Terje's entrance. His playing, as always, is stunning - listen to his trademark attack-muting, as well as his amazing innate melodic sensibilities...and turn it right up!

If you liked "Chaser", you'll love this one. Terje Rypdal creates amazing music that brings you a colorfull experience when listen. His gitar realy speaks to your spirit. You'll feel like in a voyage, where tension and calm happened in a well balanced mood. It worth to be in a serious CD collection.

Terje Rypdal (i believe it's pronounced 'Tar-yay' or something similar although i've heard some ridiculous interpretations) has been around for decades and his stint with Don 'Sugarcane' Harris in the early 1970s was excellently documented on The Sugarcane Harris "Anthology" CD. On it he played with blinding accurate jazz based solos with imagination & dexterity alongside the brilliant Volker Kriegel & Harvey Mandel.
His solo CD's (mostly on ECM) show him to be a dreamy, evocative player using reverb, legato lines and bluesy overbends to replicate the enchantment of Norways historic beauty, folklore and grandeur. Rypdal is very similar at times to David Gilmour although Jimi Hendrix is named as Terje's inspiration along with Hank Marvin. Jeff Beck must've been inspired by Terje when he performed that haunting tune "Where Were You?" back in the late 80s.
This CD is among my favourites of Terje's and is the one i nearly always return to among the other eight that i own. It's consistant throughout from the 1st tune right to the last.
All the tracks add up to a breathtaking soundtrack of Norway. They're hauntingly beautiful and conjure up vast lakes,big skies and icy blue mountains a la Peer Gynt.
If you don't own anything by Terje then this is the one to start with.

Recently I have been more and more curious about the music from Terje Rypdal. It's not that strange because I'm a Jazz guitarist myself so the exploration of my "colleagues" music is something really natural and interesting for me. But I never encountered Terye's music before and I have to admit that not everything that he did appeal to me. In the end of the 5 or 6 cd's of his that I did buy to explore his universe this is the one that I love the most. This album is based on an interesting electric trio format. Bass, electric guitar and drums plus the addiction of some keyboard parts and textures plyed by Terye himself. The music is an electric Jazz - fusion very lyrical that has a very special sound and balance. It is a "pure" album to me, purity is something that belongs in this music. This music is something that I can listen over and over and never get tired of. Think about a Jazz - fusion electric kind of thing where the main solo instrument is an electric distorted guitar a la Uzeb (a fantastic canadian fusion band now unfortunatly gone). The man is more a lead guitar player than Bill Frisell for example (even if some atmosphere could remind you of Bill's music) and more aggressive than Pat Metheny (but Terye could play delicate too ..). His sound is distorted and wide, with some modulations and ambient effects ... very effected in a sense. The writing is very good to me. This album entertain me even if it's a deep album, with serious music inside (apart from track numer 4 which is more or less noise) . It's a very balanced album that a lot of cats could enjoy. Probably one of the best work from Terye. A very good place to start I suppose.
