Nils Petter Molvær with Eivind Aarset & Samuel Rohrer
7th October 2018
Nils Petter Molvaer
Norwegian trumpet player, composer and producer famous for combining many different stylistics such as jazz, ambient, rock, funk, electronic music, hip-hop or pop. Years ago, he started as a sideman in the Masqualero jazz band (the name derives from the composition of Wayne Shorter), thanks to which he was noticed by the head of the ECM label – Manfred Eicher. Later, he recorded many classic studio sessions for this German publishing house with the participation of many great instrumentalists and vocalists like Robyn Schulkowsky, Marilyn Mazur, Jon Balke’s Oslo 13 and Sidsel Endresen. In 1997, Molvar published his first solo album “Khmer”, counted among the most important contemporary jazz publications of the last two decades. The muted sound of the Molvara trumpet, sometimes modulated by means of electronics, is expressive, recognizable and original.
In Wrocław, well-known guitarist Eivind Aarset and Swiss drummer Samuel Rohrer will perform at his side.
