Esbjörn Svensson Tribute

Friday 20 June 2008 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

Jez Nelson presents a tribute to the late Swedish pianist Esbjorn Svensson, who died on Saturday in a diving accident, at the age of 44.

Since forming in 1990, Esbjorn's trio EST transformed jazz music, both in their native Sweden and around the world. Their songbook of intricate and anthemic tunes - which have become standards for a generation of younger musicians - as well as their countless festival appearances, made them a live phenomenon, with an appeal that extended well beyond their core jazz fanbase.

Duration:

1 hour 30 minutes
