In 2004, Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen brought Audun Kleive and Jan Bang to a variety of locations to live-compose the ten tracks of Chiaroscuro, whose sound is as much dominated by subtle sampling and electronics as percussion and trumpet. Chiaroscuro is a really remarkable listen that is frankly gorgeous. Released on vinyl for the first time by Rune Grammofon.

8/10 Jack 7th June 2017

Arve Henriksen is without doubt one of Norway's leading instrumentalists, a master of the trumpet. He is also a searching musician, whose investigations have led him to many different musical places. As with his previous work Sakuteiki, Chiaroscuro is recorded on locations in Norway, but this time in concert situations. The final selections have been chosen by Arve himself and treated and mixed by Jan Bang and Erik Honoré. The album's title comes, of course, from the Italian word meaning light and shade.
