Guitarist Terje Rypdal is one of the most prominent and internationally acclaimed Norwegian jazz musicians with career expanding for five decades. His breakthrough was with The Vanguards but in the late 60’s this candid musician explored jazz music and soon ended up working with the likes of Jan Garbarek and George Russell. As a solo artist Rypdal has released most of his music with German label ECM. Last summer he celebrated his 70th birthday and his tribute album featured Bill Frisell, Nels Cline and Raoul Björkenheim just to mention a few. At Pori Jazz Rypdal will introduce his new Conspiracy band performing both his older music as well as new compositions. At Pori Jazz the band features a special guest as Danish trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg joins them for a concert to be remembered.
