Thelonius Monk was one of the truly great piano geniuses on the international jazz scene. Esbjorn Svensson is one of the truly great piano talents on the Scandinavian jazz scene. In some way you knew that they had to meet sooner or later. At last spiritually. And musically. “Plays Monk” is the telling title of the album from 1996 by Esbjorn Svensson Trio (EST), now released on ACT. Ten of the most beloved songs by Monk, from nocturnal, lovingly caressing “`Round Midnight” to the gay and sprightly “Rhythm-A-Ning", gets here a becomingly shining new color. In EST, who previously has released some critically acclaimed albums – “From Gagarin´s Point Of View” (ACT 9005-2), “Winter In Venice“ (ACT 9007-2) and lately “Good Morning Susie Soho“ (ACT 9009-2) – we have Magnus Ostrom on drums, Dan Berglund on double-bass and, of course, Esbjorn Svensson himself, who was an infant when he practically learned to walk to the sound of “In Walked Bud.” “My father was and is a great jazz lover. So I was very young when I first came in touch with Monk´s music. He is the kind of composer that cannot be avoided,” says Esbjorn Svensson.
