Appearances by

Esbjorn Svensson

European jazz has developed its own unique vocabulary alongside its Afro-American counterpart, and E.S.T is an exceptional example of this.

The Esbjörn Svensson Trio, or E.S.T. as it is known internationally, has taken its musical development several steps further. At the same time it is linked with the same Swedish tradition that has made Sweden famous in jazz. The results are a structurally unified album in which the personal sound of the group has become more intense and projects an even greater depth from which it ascends to new musical heights. Welcome to E.S.T. Country!

We are now writing in March 2002. It is once again time for another perfectly conceived E.S.T. album. And as usual, we invite you to a "joyful dance" with the trio's very special mixture of modern jazz, melancholy folk, contemporary classical, along with the irrepressible influence of rock. E.S.T. - Strange Place For Snow. With its new album, the incredibly beautiful "Strange Place for Snow", the Esbjörn Svensson Trio, with its familiar combination of Dan Berglund on bass and Magnus Östrüm on drums, once again shows that it is the trio with the 'has the most to offer' in Sweden. But not just there! They prove that they are without a doubt one of the world's leading jazz trios.
