3 stars If you like the Bitches Brew, this just might appeal to you. Not a redo, something new.

Recorded in April of 2003 at the Vossa Jazz Festival in Norway, Vossabrygg did not actually get released until three years later. It's actually a commissioned piece, but the liner notes don't reveal whether or not it's totally composed or is a combination of structure and improvisation as I suspect Davis' Bitches Brew was. I don't think you really can make music of this nature without improvisation, though.

As the liner notes say Vossabrygg was inspired the Brew but only the first track, Ghostdancing, has an actual musical quote from the Pharoah's Dance on it. The rest is original music very much in the style of Bitches Brew to the extent that you might mistake some of it for being lost material from those sessions. Rypdal, while sometimes seeming to channel 1970's John McLaughlin, for the most part still sounds distinctively Rypdal.
