For e.s.t. fans, here's the latest from the band's manager:
The new year started with a very positive message: e.s.t.´s album “Live in Hamburg” was declared the No 1 “Jazz Album of the Decade” (Noughties) by no lesser than “The London Times” !!!
Dan and Magnus state: “We are proud and overjoyed that such an important newspaper considers one of our albums to be the most important album of a whole decade of jazz music. At the same time we are sad that Esbjörn cannot share this joy about this enormous honor with us.”
The other good news is, that the waiting will come to an end very soon: DAN BERGLUND´s Tonbruket (that´s the name of e.s.t.´s former bassist Dan Berglund´s new band) will release their debut album on January 22, 2010 (in only 11 days from now!).
Dan teamed up with Johan Lindström on guitar, Martin Hederos on piano and Andreas Werliin on drums and recorded this debut album in September and October of last year in studios in Norway and Sweden. Ake Linton did most of the recording and mixing together with the band and Johan Lindström.
