Esbjorn Svensson is dead.

His parents gave him the taste of a mixed culture, jazz and classic. His admiration for Keith Jarrett made him form the swedish EST (Esbjorn Svensson Trio). The trio was somewhere between Thelonious Monk, Robert Wyatt and Radiohead. A very free and fresh jazz music with serenity and and a sense of emergency. Downbeat , famous us jazz magazine followed the trio since 2005. He died saturday near Stockholm of a diving accident. He was 44, married with two children. Their records, at my humble opinion of jazz lover, were very interesting and new, abolishing frontiers between different musical forms. It's a very sad loss.
