A final masterpiece and the legacy of a groundbreaking band.
In January 2007 e.s.t. were on tour in Asia and Australia performing shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Jakarta, Perth and Sydney. It was their third tour of Japan and their second time on the fifth continent and the venues and audiences had become noticeably bigger. Only a few weeks before they had finished their triumphant tour of Germany performing their now legendary âLive in Hamburgâ concert (awarded âAlbum of the Decadeâ by the London TIMES). It was undoubtedly the prime time of the style defining jazz band of the Noughties.EsbjÃ¶rn Svensson, Magnus ÃstrÃ¶m and Dan Berglund decided to rent the famous Studio 301 in Sydney for their off-days in the middle of the Australian tour and jammed for two consecutive days to develop new songs and material. Altogether they recorded 9 hours of music. âLeucocyteâ became the first release from this recording and has been praised by critics and fans alike as a ground-breaking work that leads into a new musical universe. Very soon after the recording EsbjÃ¶rn Svensson had edited much of the material down to two albums. And so the plan at the time was to release either a double album or two consecutive albums from this recording. The untimely passing of EsbjÃ¶rn Svensson then disrupted this undertaking and only one of the albums, âLeucocyteâ, was released at the time.Three years on, in October and November 2011, Dan Berglund and Magnus ÃstrÃ¶m revisited the material from that recording and together with their regular sound engineer Ake Linton made their own edit for an album which is now called â301â on the basis of the name of the studio where the album was recorded.
