Since there seems to be a bit of interest in Rypdal at the moment, here is a set I dragged out of the archives. This was posted in our conributions section as high-grade mp3s, but since I had the flac files lying about, I thought I might as well put them here.
Terje Rypdal Trio

Black Boy (T. Rypdal) 9:36
Back of J. (B. Phillips) 4:05
Bend It (T. Rypdal) (inc) 14:52

More than 90 minutes in all.
Jon Christensen was with the Jan Garbararek Group at the time and so was Rypdal initially, though I think he might have left by the time of this recording. Barre Phillips was in John Surman's Trio, but the trio might have disbanded by 1973.
Basically improvisational, good sound and to my knowledge, never officially released.
