News about E.S.T.

An update from  B.H. Hopper Management in London. Before Esbjorn Svensson's tragic death in June 2008, the great Swedish trio — Svensson on piano, Magnus Öström on drums, Dan Berglund on cello — often played the Dakota in Minneapolis. Will we see Öström when he tours the US and Canada in 2014?
