The “Jazz album of the decade 2000 – 2010” (London Times). In a word: wow. Since their 1993 debut album, the Esbjörn Svensson Trio, or E.S.T., as it is usually called, have taken the jazz world by storm, winning numerous awards, playing sold-out world tours, topping the charts, and generally enjoying a popularity that's exceeded that of almost any other jazz group in years. The trio was also the first European jazz group to grace the cover of Down Beat magazine, which led to long discussions about the heritage of jazz and the validity of European jazz; and, naturally, it caused some listeners to perceive an artificial hype and discredit the band for simply not being as brilliant as everyone says they are.

The Swedish trio e.s.t surpassed all expectations with the release of the album Viaticum (ACT 9015-2) in February 2005.Not only have the Swedes received the German Jazz Award in GOLD for their last three albums, but Viaticum attained a GOLD and a PLATINUM award just three months after release. An all-time record! At the same time the album made it into the Pop-Charts in Sweden (# 5), in Germany (# 45) and in France (# 60), and was chosen as "CD of the Month" by the magazines Stereo, Stereoplay, Piano News as well as Drums&Percussion. Viaticum received euphoric reviews from around Europe, which can be summed up in one sentence: "This is contemporary jazz at it's best" (FonoForum). Viaticum is on its way to being the most successful Instrumental-Jazz-CD of 2005.

Available for quite some time as an import before the tiny Philadelphia-based indie 215 Records finally released it stateside, complete with a bonus live DVD, 2003's Seven Days of Falling is every bit the equal of E.S.T.'s earlier records. Misguided American media comparisons to the highly overrated the Bad Plus have done pianist Esbjörn Svensson, bassist Dan Berglund, and drummer Magnus Ostrom a grave disservice, as their music is far more wide-ranging and much less gimmicky.

Though jazz was born and bred in the United States, its influence long ago spread throughout the world, and its popularity overseas has continued to grow even as its significance on the American music scene has waned. This Swedish group, also known as the Esbjörn Svensson Trio, is among the jazz trios to land on North American shores, and their acoustic jazz sound seems certain to build a following in the States.

E.S.T. LIVE ’95, originally released as MR. & MRS. HANDKERCHIEF, is the second official release for the Swedish jazz trio centered on the piano of its namesake, Esbjorn Svensson. While redolent of early Bill Evans at times, the combo delivers a purely modern sound that balances on a ledge between avant-garde playfulness and smooth poppishness. If the 88 keys are inevitably front and center, Dan Berglund’s bass snakes in craftily, most notably on the sly “Breadbasket,” while Magnus Ostrom’s backbeat is steady as a pendulum.

Good Morning Susie Soho peaked on the Swedish pop album chart at 15, above the likes of Whitney Houston, Britney Spears and Pearl Jam, yet was named album of the year for 2000 by the critics in the British magazine Jazzwise. At the same time, Svensson was on the covers of two German jazz magazines, was the cover feature, along with Jacky Terrasson, in the French magazine Jazzman and was hailed by the German news weekly Der Spiegel as the future of jazz piano (together with Brad Mehldau). Clearly then it's not unreasonable to suggest that this album is making waves across Europe. That the cutting edge can live on without necessarily inhabiting volatile experimentation is hardly new, and Svensson's trio, while darkly lyrical, is also fiercely contemporary.

"Winter in Venice" is the band’s fourth CD, following "When Everyone Has Gone" (Dragon, 1993), "Mr. And Mrs. Handkerchief" (Prophone, 1995), and "EST Plays Monk" (BMG, 1997). "Winter in Venice" is at the same time the group’s first CD, in that it is the first independent profile that exhibits the three musicians in their present form. The 13 original compositions show them as sensitive masters of communication with the penchant for transforming simple, pretty melodies into complex networks of motifs.

Thelonius Monk was one of the truly great piano geniuses on the international jazz scene.Esbjörn 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 CD from 1996 by Esbjörn 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 colour.

Clearly it's difficult to listen to any jazz recording without making comparisons with other great artists who have gone before them. In the last couple of decades, the position occupied by Keith Jarrett's Standards Trio has almost demanded that such comparisons should be made with them, and those who are fans of Jarrett will not be disappointed here. But this 1993 (and also pre-ACT) recording in the wide-ranging catalogue of the Esbjorn Svensson Trio not only establishes them as artists who march to the beat of their own orignal drum, but offers the listener a signpost to how the trio would emerge over the next decade or so.
