My favourite guitarists gallery yesterday omitted one essential player: Terje Rypdal!
But i was digging through some dusty corners of my hard-drive a wee while ago, and came across an mp3 called "S.C. & W." by Barre Phillips. I couldn't remember what it was or why on earth i'd spent precious bandwidth downloading it and so, of course, i played it.
The immediately-identifiable sound of Terje rang through the speakers, and of course i slapped myself silly. I can't imagine how i forgot him yesterday. (I plead temporary insanity.)
