Skywards is a return to jazz proper for Rypdal. He surrounds himself with familiar faces for this date, including cellist David Darling, bassist Palle Mikkelborg, Jon Christensen on drums, and Terje Tønnesen on violin. Also employed are Christian Eggen on piano and electronic keyboards and the additional drumming and percussion talents of Paolo Vinaccia. Rypdal's signature guitar sound, present in every moment of his solo breaks, has a soaring, piercing kind of emotional reach. It is indeed "skyward" in its sound

Terje Rypdal is well known by his very personal guitar techniques and characteristic sound. And by his quality albums as well. So - even if Skywards is far not his best work, this album is worth listening for sure. With a team of his most usual collaborators (including great Norwegian trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg), Terje recorded one of the most eclectic album for years.

Skywards- Terje Rypdal (ECM 1608) I have been a big fan of Terje Rypdal's ever since I first heard the track Speil off the Descendre album. Since then I seem to have collected about twenty or so recordings along the way and barr some of the orchestral outings like QED and Undisonus have really come to admire him as a great musician of our time. With his latest release Skywards, Rypdal takes yet one more giant step into the nordic hall of rock/ jazz/ improvisational heroes  . Listen to the opening track Skywards as proof of this. In terms of creating atmospheric music you can't afford to go past Terje Rypdal.
