TONBRUKET, the new outfit of former e.s.t. bassist Dan Berglund, will release their second album next week titled “Dig it to the End” (ACT).
TONBRUKET members Johan Lindström (guitar), Martin Hederos (piano & keys), Andreas Werliin (drums) and of course Dan Berglund (bass) will celebrate the release with a concert and after-show party at Stockholm´s famous Nalen club [Stockholm, Sweden] on May 25 before they then embark on a tour of the USA and Canada in June and hit some of the major European festivals in July.
You can find the full tour schedule and sound-samples from the upcoming album on their website.
Two days earlier (May 23) the Magnus Öström Group will give their French debut with a concert at the New Morning club in Paris that also hosted some memorable early e.s.t. shows.
Dan Berglund and Magnus Öström will perform one very exclusive show together [at the JazzBaltica festival] this summer (July 2) as a tribute to Esbjörn Svensson. They will be joined on stage by special guest Pat Metheny!
I've been listening to and enjoying Magnus Ostrom's new CD, Thread of Life. Someday before too long I hope to carve out time to review it. If you're loving the lineup at JazzBaltica, listen to Track 6, "Ballad for E," which features Berglund and Metheny and will likely be the emotional center of their performance in Germany.
