Nils Petter Molvær, Norwegian trumpet player, composer and producer, connects stylistic extremes - jazz, ambient, house, electronic and breakbeats - and effortlessly melts them into convincing soundscapes of deep intensity.

Born in 1960 in Sula ( Norway ), Nils Petter was introduced to jazz from an early age by his musician father. After playing in school bands and local clubs he left Sula in 1979 to study music at the conservatory of Trondheim, where he developed his unique style and started to gain a reputation as one of Norway 's emerging new talents.

Nils Petter has eclectic musical influences who he names as Miles Davis, Don Cherry, Billie Holiday, Brian Eno, Joni Mitchell and Bill Laswell. His interest in both acoustic and electric music shows the ease with which he handles the conventions of pop, rock and funk, alongside those of modern jazz. These unique sensibilities soon established him as a much sought after musician in Oslo .

After his intermezzo with the Norwegian jazz combo Masqualero, Nils Petter was introduced to Manfred Eicher, who integrated him into his cast of musicians and studio sessions with ECM artists such as Robyn Schulkowsky.
