Arve Henriksen

po_Henriksen-ArveArve Henriksen (born March 22, 1968) is a Norwegian trumpet player, renowned for his distinctive, flute-like sound on the trumpet, inspired by the sound of the Japanese shakuhachi flute.

He also sings; his unique wordless vocalising was central to Chiaroscuro, where he often sings in a soprano’s range. The control over his head voice is such that in “Opening Image” he could quite easily be mistaken for a woman.
