The Independent Culture

The Norwegian trumpeter/producer/singer who makes his instrument sound like a Japanese flute is honoured with an impressive box-set: seven vinyl albums and two DVDs representing his complete solo recordings for the label.

A brand-new album, Chron, is also included and it's a slightly nervier experience than the sublime Strjon (2007), one of the best albums of the past decade or more. Try "Glacier Descent" for the full, ecstatic effect.
