Happy birthday, Terje Rypdal

Terje Rypdall is so under appreciated a guitarist, that his wikipedia discography doesn’t even mention his first five albums, or his Psychedelic group, Dream. The guy has been putting out unique records on ECM alone, for over forty years now. I have a particular fondness for his 1968, Pre-ECM solo debut, Bleak House, on which Dead Man’s Tale, a rare vocal track for Terje, is featured. How has this cut not been scooped up for a soundtrack? So good!

Fantastic live footage here…
