"ER", NPM's 4th studio album as bandleader, contained a wide spectrum of musical expression: from the soft, downbeat and low-key to the strong, powerful and epic. "ER" marked a new direction, built upon concepts that had emerged from the creation of the solo performance for Rikskonsertene and the soundtrack for "Edy". Despite the changes, however, "ER" retained a feeling of familiarity, something unmistakeably "Molvær". More creative space was given to programmers like Knut Sævik, DJ Strangefruit, Reidar Skaar and Jan Bang: "It's important to use people in what they're good at."

While vocal tracks had appeared on his previous releases, in "ER" they too were given more space. The dynamic "Water" featured Sidsel Endresen's unique voice, singing a wordless song of dynamic intensity. In the beautiful song "Only These Things Count", Sidsel's voice again leads the way, with beautifully restrained accompaniment from Eivind Aarset on guitar, Magne Furuholmen on acoustic piano, and Ingebrigt Flaten on acoustic bass. NPM's trumpet provides layered chords as well as some beautiful soloing in this strong and emotionally charged ballad. Common to the eight tracks on "ER" is NPM's strong melodic playing, this time with more emphasis on his superb and distinctive technique than the application of effects and processing of the previous albums. The album subsequently won a Norwegian Grammy.

About Nils Petter Molvær:

Nils Petter Molvær (NPM), Norwegian trumpet player, composer and producer, takes multiple music styles - jazz, ambient, house, electronic and break beats, as well as elements from hip hop, rock and pop music - and effortlessly reshapes them into unique and dramatic soundscapes of deep intensity.

NPM was born in 1960 on the little island of Sula (Norway). From an early age his father - jazz clarinettist and saxophonist, Jens Arne Molvær - introduced NPM to jazz, although his musical diet would become increasingly diverse. After playing in school bands and local clubs, he left Sula in 1979 to study music at the Trondheim Conservatory, where he began developing his singular style, and proceeded to gain a reputation as one of Norway's emerging new talents.

His remarkable ease in handling the often-contrary conventions of pop, rock, funk, and modern jazz ensured a strong interest in both acoustic and electric music. This chameleon-like ability soon established him ...
