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.

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.
