The first-ever European band featured on the front cover of US jazz bible DownBeat, e.s.t. was undoubtedly one of the most popular groups to come out of the genre. This best of is a look back at the band s unique work, and a tribute to its mastermind Esbjörn Svensson.
Headed by Esbjörn Svensson (1964 2008), e.s.t. was undoubtedly one of the most important groups in jazz. This definitive collection celebrates the life and music of the late piano genius, drawn from the group s stunning recording history on ACT. Eighty minutes of 13 e.s.t. highlights, compiled by Dan Berglund and Magnus Öström.
A posthumous gift in music. Leucocyte shows Esbjörn
Svensson s trio at its most exploratory. This is acoustic jazz that rocks
rather than swings. --The Boston Globe

This retrospective contains 13 tracks taken from seven of their magnificent albums to give a fair view of the range of their work. Not in any way a substitute for the actual albums in their entirety but a jolly good summary. For the newcomer to this truly world class trio, this album is a fine initial investment...though it will undoubtedly entice you to purchase more!
