I read in the paper last week about Esbjörn Svensson’s death in a diving accident earlier in the summer. I first heard E.S.T.’s music in a Virgin Megastore in Milan on our honeymoon. I had just been flicking through the cds and was blown away by their spacious, epic, jazz. The Swedish Trio were often called “The Radiohead of Jazz” because of the experimental approach they took to music, mixing elements of rock and electronica with their jazz. It was a lazy term but one that often fitted.
