  • Credits

    Ketil Bjornstad: Ketil Bjornstad; Terje Rypdal.
    Personnel: Ketil Bjornstad (piano); Terje Rypdal (guitar, electric guitar).
    When it comes to the European jazz fusion scene, electric guitarist Terje Rypdal was in on the ground floor during the late 1960s, playing with George Russell and fellow ECM Records star-to-be Jan Garbarek. Recorded live, LIFE IN LEIPZIG finds Rypdal engaging in duo dialogues with acoustic pianist Ketil Bjornstad. It's a fascinating contrast of styles, Bjornstad's stately, crystalline Bill Evans-ish piano chords and Rypdal's lean, slow-burning, slightly distorted sustained tones intertwining. If Jimi Hendrix had lived, he might've gone on to make music like this. LIFE IN LEIPZIG is an album to get lost in.

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (p.88) - "Their styles are diametrically opposed -- Bjornstad the classical musician, Rypdal the rocker -- but their chemistry has stood the test of time."
