Three falling free

Esbjorn Svensson Trio
Page added Aug 6, 2012 Updated Sep 7, 2012

On Jazz Up Late: Gerry Koster plays music from Sweden's Esbjorn Svensson Trio and their posthumous album 301, recorded in Sydney in 2007.

EST's innovative, genre-melding approach to music gained both critical acclaim and commercial success throughout Europe and abroad, and its multigenerational appeal saw it performing at rock venues as well as jazz clubs. Their album 301 takes its title from the famous Sydney studio in which it was recorded during the trio's 2007 Australian visit.

Pianist Esbjorn Svensson died in a diving accident in 2008, leaving EST's 301 sessions as one of their last. Released this year, it is one of this week's highlights.

Also on the playlist: Monk interpretations by Bebop and Beyond, Giorgio Gaslini and the Microscopic Septet and a preview of the William Parker Orchestra's Essence Of Ellington due for release in September.
