Never-before-heard Esbjörn Svensson solo album discovered. Worldwide release November 18th, 2022 on ACT.

There are only a few figures in music whose work influences and shapes a genre as a whole. This is undoubtedly true of the Swede Esbjörn Svensson. With e.s.t. Esbjörn Svensson Trio, the pianist and composer shaped the musical language of the piano trio and wowed audiences beyond age and genre affiliations. His influence on jazz as a whole reverberates to this day and already within the second and third generation of musicians. And he is unforgotten among listeners worldwide.

HOME.S. is Esbjörn Svensson's first, previously unreleased solo album. The sheer existence of such a recording and its completely unexpected discovery over a decade after its creation is nothing less than a sensation: Since the early 1990s, Svensson focused almost his entire creative energy and recording activities on his work with e.s.t.. Thus, these new recordings are not only the first, but practically the only ones that show Svensson in a setting other than that of the trio: Intimate, concentrated and completely one with himself.

The recordings for HOME.S. were made only a few weeks before Esbjörn Svensson's sudden death on June 14th, 2008. Svensson recorded the music in his Swedish home. For almost ten years afterward, the album rested untouched in his wife Eva's personal archive. She says: 'When the solo piano recordings were found at our home it felt like 'getting a message smuggled over the border'. A message of love, space, eternity and infinite creation. But also a message encouraging to continue the creation and to find ways for the music to meet the listener. More wanted to be explored, and today we can tell the whole story ofHOME.S.'
