Nils Petter Molvær - Khmer FLAC album

Khmer (released 1997 in Germany by ECM Records (ECM 1560) – 537 798-2) is an album by the Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvær. The album mixes elements of electronica and jazz. The album is based on sampled and artificially generated sounds, backed by beats from house and drum'n'bass. However, the often very slow rhythms are played on acoustic drums.

Khmer is surely the most unusual album ever released by ECM - unusual because the label, which is best known for elevated chamber jazz, presents the solo debut of trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer as a production that plays with modern electronica methods while not eschewing the well-known ECM aesthetic. Molvaer's music is somewhere between scary and majestic, and changes between ominous ambient sounds and hard breakbeats, along which atonal screeching guitars combined with melancholic melodies, create a fascinating mélange

As I vinyl junkie I have to admit: this recording is superb on this cd. Amazing stereo sound. The bass is deeper than deep. Clear at the same. A true ddd recording.

This was a pioneering venture for ECM and I being a fan of ECMs more electric and eclectric jazz was thrown a punch in the ear when I heard it over a decade ago.You take one part Miles Davis late 70s era sound, one part down-tempo, one part fringe electronica and what you get is same darn amazing innovative music by one Norwegian who decided to to take door # three in the contest of what jazz is defined.The turn tables, looped and wah/talkbox guitar, muted trumpet and heavy electric bass just grooves so hot you'd think global warming took its cue from this recording.Some really exciting music that even today in 2017 sounds fresh and groundbreaking. Nils solos are poignant and precise without overbearing all the other instrumentation and thats what makes this a winner in my music library.As a side note the deluxe version has a bonus cd of extra mixes. His follow-up Solid Ether is equally strong but Khmer is hard to topple as far as freshness!
