Arve Henriksen : Chiaroscuro (Rune Grammofon, 2005)
Aside from David Sanborn and Dewey Redman, the musician who really made me realize that I wasn't crazy for wanting to explore the extreme sound spectrum of my instrument and who has a clear vision of what he wants from music is the Norwegian trumpet player Arve Henriksen. I remember being so inspired when I first heard him... His sound is absolutely beautiful and it evokes so many emotions.
I listen to and appreciate many kinds of improvised music and I always get something out of listening to every one of my favorites however Arve Henrikson is someone who embraces the 'beautiful' side of improvised music. Every time I hear the fragility and simplicity in his lines I get shivers down my spine. All of his albums are great, but Chiaroscuro is my definite favorite.
