E.S.T. Symphony

With their all-embracing vision of jazz, Esbjorn Svensson Trio (pianist Esbjorn Svensson, bassist Dan Berglund and drummer Magnus Ostrom) was without doubt one of the most widely admired and influential European instrumental ensembles in the first decade of the new millennium. E.S.T., as they came to be known, rode the crest of a wave with their combination of highly singable themes, mesmerizingly chilled grooves and visually stimulating, high energy ‘live’ performances. They filled large rock stadium venues and reached out to non-jazz audiences in a way that has not been equaled in the history of European jazz. Unfortunately, their fame was cut short in 2006 when pianist Svensson died suddenly in a diving accident. The roots of this project go back as far as 2003, when Esbjorn Svensson decided to create a chamber orchestral canvas for his compositions for a series of live international performances. “This was the initial inspiration for E.S.T. SYMPHONY,” says Hans Ek. By both imaginatively expanding upon and saluting the broad-based contemporary sonic universe created by E.S.T. in the first decade of the new millennium, Hans Ek has created on E.S.T. SYMPHONY an enduring and entirely fitting monument to a much-missed and highly inspirational contemporary jazz trio.
