The new album by the master of musical landscapes, Nils Petter Molvær, discovering the clarity of song-orientated structures and stretching the genre boundaries to new limits once again.
Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer is one of Europe’s most successful and best selling jazz artists. He has his own individual sound, influenced by Scandinavian nature, electronic music and technology as well as by colleagues including Miles Davis and Jon Hassell. His musical journey takes the listener through a wide variety of styles, with varying degrees of abstraction along the way.
Molvaer has performed with musicians such as Bill Laswell, Sidsel Endresen and Eivind Aarset, has surrounded himself with DJs and VJs, but his style and expression remain vivid and unique in every musical project he undertakes.

You can argue that this is a bit of a u-turn in Nils Petter Molvaer's career as he delivers an album that closely resembles his ECM production (particularly Khmer) but I do not have a problem with this choice as Khmer is in fact my favourite NPM album and this new one is great too.
The Kit, Strange Pillows and other tracks are strongly percussion-driven but there is room for some softer tracks too.
The slide guitar that he mentioned in interviews as being a new discovery had me a little worried because it did sound like a strange addition to his sound palette but it doesn't really alter the overall musical landscape.
So in short if you like Khmer and Solid Ether this will be right up your street.
Instead if you have never heard of NPM before then the usual references to Miles Davis, Jon Hassell, etc apply, but seriously who can play a trumpet without getting those names mentioned in reviews. Imagine Jon Hassell on steroids with a huge dose of dancefloor beats and you get an idea of what music we are talking about here.
I described Khmer as Miles Davis meets Massive Attack (Mezzanine era, although Khmer was out before Mezzanine), and Switch fits with that template, but with some added Daniel Lanois in the various guitars...
Personally I like what the different flavours of guitar (pedal steel, resonator, baritone and the sitar/guitar "Shankar" guitar) add to the textures of the music along with the varied percussion.
The addition of lap steel guitar adds a new dimension to the sound.
One of THE albums of the year.
