Norwegian guitarist Terje Rypdal will make a rare live appearance in New York at le poisson rouge next Wednesday, June 27, at 7:30. Rypdal will be accompanied by Palle Mikkelborg, trumpet; Ståle Storløkken, Hammond B-3 organ; and Paolo Vinaccia, drums/sampling. Doors open at 6:30 and advance tickets are $25.00 (day of show: $30.00).

The show is in support of a soon-to-be-released three-CD ECM boxed set, Odyssey-In Studio & In Concert, which includes the original two-LP Odyssey album, heard on CD, for the first time, in its entirety, and a recently unearthed 1976 radio recording that documents Rypdal’s work for his Odyssey quartet and the Swedish Radio Jazz Group.
