Music Millennium

Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer has his own very individual sound, influenced as much by the poetry of Scandinavian nature as by electronic calculation, and last but not least by colleagues like Miles Davis und Jon Hassell. Listening to him play, it's easy to forget that his instrument is a trumpet. On his last album, HAMADA, he switched to and fro between very harmonious and extremely brutal passages, while on BABOON MOON these two opposite poles blend into a unified whole again. Improvisation is an important factor but for this music Molvaer calls it free, black prog rock.
