Terje Rypdal was born in Oslo, 1947, the son of a composer, clarinetist and orchestra leader. He studied classical piano and trumpet as a child, and then taught himself to play guitar as he entered his teens. Starting out as a Hank Marvin-influenced rock guitarist with The Vanguards, Rypdal turned towards jazz in 1968 and joined Jan Garbarek's group and later George Russell's sextet and orchestra. An important step towards international attention was his participation in the free jazz festival in Baden-Baden, Germany, in 1969, where he was part of a band led by Lester Bowie. He has often been recorded on the ECM record label, both jazz-oriented material and classical compositions.

"Works is an excellent sampler of Rypdal's music; it includes cuts from his superb (but currently unavailable) early-'70s albums," - AllMusic
