When you think about the greatest guitarists, the names that come to mind are always the same: Hendrix, Clapton, Beck, Vaughan, Guy for blues, Montgomery, Hall, Metheny, Frisell, etc... for jazz, Di Meola, McLaughlin, De Lucia for other styles. These are only some names that I recall easily, but among them should stay the Norwegian Terje Rypdal.
In his career he has moved along diverse genre and has produced several valuable works. In 1985, together with the drummer Audun Kleive and the bassist Bjørn Kjellemyr, he issued the album Chaser where, among very interesting tracks, which hinted to his future musical developments, there was the piece Ørnen. Six minutes and eighteen seconds of music, played with only three instruments, but which should deserve the front page photo of the big universal book of masterpieces.
