RCD2037 - Arve Henriksen: Chiaroscuro (CD)
"Chiaroscuro" is the follow-up to this fantastic trumpet player´s debut album, the much acclaimed "Sakuteiki" from 2001 (RCD2021). BBC Online called it "a thing of rare and compelling beauty.... musicmaking as natural and essential as breathing". This time he is joined by drummer Audun Kleive and sound artist Jan Bang to create some very beautiful musical soundscapes where the trumpet is the natural point of focus. There´s also more room for Arve´s wordless singing, sometimes used to stunning effect with Supersilent.
