Totally moved by this amazing evocative sound. Arve exactly captures the fleeting of a plume of ash, wispy, ethereal and take your breath away beautiful. Close your eyes and you're floating above a Norwegian volcano.
Solidification includes Arve Henriksen's Rune Grammofon albums Sakuteiki, Chiaroscuro and Strjon, all with added bonus tracks as well as the brand new album Chron, his first since Cartography and only available as part of this set.

I love jazz because it's sophisticated, international, atmospheric yet free, cool and warm.
I was first exposed to jazz through the sultry voice and flawless swing of my mother.
I met Mark Murphy, David Linx, Kurt Elling, and Youn Sun Nah.
The best show I ever attended was Youn Sun Nah in Paris.
The first jazz record I bought was Native Dancer by Wayne Shorter and Milton Nascimento
My advice to new listeners: open your mind and your ears, forget about structure, feel the textures.
Go see live music and keep buying CDs!
