Esbjorn Svensson

On Saturday March 9, 2002 a select number of people assembled at midnight for a secret release party - by invitation only - at London´s legendary “Pizza Express Jazzclub to present their album “Strange Place For Snow”

Nearly 100 concerts (in 18 countries) and 6 major European awards later, the band had taken Europe by storm. e.s.t. had been voted “best international act” by the Victoires du Jazz in France and by the BBC in England. They had received the German Jazz Award and the German Critics Award for the “Best Album of the Year”. They had been given the Guiness Jazz in Europe Award in Ireland and the “Revelation of the Festival Award” at Midem in Cannes.

On Monday March 10, 2003 almost exactly a year after that remarkable evening in London Esbjorn Svensson, Magnus Öström, and Dan Berglund met at Stockholm´s Atlantis studio to begin sessions for the new album “Seven days Of Falling”.

During the ten years between the recording of their first album “When Everyone Has Gone” (Dragon 1993) and “Seven Days of Falling”, the band has grown together and formed its own unmistakable voice and sound. They have never followed trends or mimicked past heroes: e.s.t. have created their own music and their own style.

“Seven Days of Falling” features wonderful ballads “Ballad for the Unborn” and “Why She didn´t Come” and guides us through great musical landscapes, but it is songs like “O.D.R.I.P.” and “Elevation of Love” that set the pace. The e.s.t. magic that has captured so many admirers is still very much present in their compelling themes, Esbjörn Svensson’s seductive piano melodies, bassist Dan Berglund’s use of bow and sound effects (with Hendrix-like results) and drummer Magnus Öström’s accelerating drum’n’bass beats.

Asked what creates the magic of e.s.t. recordings and concerts most people say that it is “in between what is being played”. Esbjörn, Dan, and Magnus leave room for the music to breathe into the minds and souls of the audience.
