I'm a big fan of Rypdal, esp his 70s works such as his first album (71), Odyssey (75) and Waves (78).  got into him via Supersilent esp after someone commented that the keyboardist's style on the 7 dvd reminded him of Rypdal's guitar lines...........so once in no lookin back fer me!!!
 
anyone else here into his stuff?

Well, he's on my "artists I really need to hear more of" list. I've only heard selected stuff, but it was great. I first heard of him through his connection to ECM.

yeah i've got Whenever & What Comes After as well..........great stuff too.  Love it all.....almost......as i do not have much of his current works, yet.
 
But a lot of my friends who are into jazz fusion always complain to me abt his guitar style and tone...they keep sayin its too cheesy and 80s sounding.....and i'm like, bloody infidels u have ears but u neither listen nor hear!!!!!! hehehehehe
 
Hes a great guitar player IMO bec he keeps his lines simple and sparse yet full of character.  Sometimes i think hes got that David Gilmour kinda vibe, which is great 'cause i'm also a fan of the latter.
 
Ryp it up!!!!!

Clap that Rypdal's "WHEN EVER I SEEM TO BE FAR AWAY" is my fav album of  him, this is one great masterpiece (IMO); on the second place (IMO) is the album "DESCENDRE", with Palle Mikkelborg (trumpet, flugehorn, keybords) and Jon Christensen (drums, percussions), from 1980.

"Oddysey" is high on my want list, but I have read that the CD edition has omitted one song, so I guess that the LP is what I am looking for. Pretty expensive, I suppose...

Bleak House (1968) is a good album.
Also check out Min Bul from 1970. Avant-jazz.
Michael Mantler's "The hapless child" (1976) features Rypdal, and is a great album. Highly recommended.

Surprised nobody mentioned the 2006 Rypdal release Vossabrygg (ECM), with a who's who of Norwegian jazz and nu.fusion players (e.g. Bugge Wesseltoft). A sort tribute to Bitches Brew, ('Brygg' is Norwegian for 'brew'), it suggests where Miles Davis might be now with turntablists (here Rypdal's son), drum'n'bass etc and of course Terj Rypdal's majestic guitar work. I really hadn't liked his two albums released immediately before this on ECM, but with Vossabrygg and he back on form having absorbed his recent classical leanings, and adding them interestingly into the mix of this live performance recording.
 
Also a fan of other, earlier Rypdal albums:
To Be Continued with Miroslav Vitous (was this last recorded performance of Vitous playing electric bass?) and Jack DeJohnette.
The first Chaser album - the title track is a stonking piece of jazz rock, with the effects stretched hard and Rypdal playing somewhere between Hank and Hendrix.
 
The Singles Collection, excellent relatively laid back jazz rock.
 
NOTE: all albums released by ECM Records.

i got that recently.....in fact the Supersilent keyboardist Storlokken is on it (and has played w Rypdal on tour).......but i personally dislike the electronica interjections and find those pretty cheesy sorry to say.......but overall its definitely good stuff.

     I have over a dozen albums, all on ECM.....   I like his early stuff, I like his more recent stuff, but I didn't like his last two releases.
