ACT will release the album "E.S.T. SYMPHONY" on October 28th
The album with symphonic versions of the music of e.s.t. Esbjörn Svensson Trio, the most important, most copied, most influential and style-building jazz band of the Noughties has just been recorded by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted and arranged by Hans Ek feat. Dan Berglund (b), Magnus Öström (dr), Iiro Rantala (p), Marius Neset (sax), Verneri Pohjola (tp) and Johan Lindström (git).
A symphonic version of e.s.t. was always the dream of Esbjörn Svensson (* April 16th, 1964; † June 14th, 2008) who was as influenced at least as much by European Classical music as by American and European jazz. In this way, E.S.T. SYMPHONY is the logical and consequent continuation of Esbjörn Svenssons work and vision.
Stay tuned for first music excerpts, cover art, full playlist and much more.
