Magnus Ostrom (E.S.T)

  • £17.50 ON T...

Magnus Olstrom has confidently stepped out of EST’s huge shadow to assert himself as a central figure in the Scandinavian Jazz scene. With his debut album Thread of Life garnering 5 star reviews back in 2011, Band on the Wall is delighted to welcome this immense talent to town.

The tragic death of pianist Esbjorn Svensson in 2008, the result of a diving accident, brought about the untimely demise of E.S.T., one of the world’s most innovative and influential jazz ensembles. For what was nominally a jazz act the Swedish trio, also featuring bassist Dan Berglund and drummer Magnus Ostrom, had achieved an almost unprecedented degree of worldwide commercial success but had done so without any inherent compromise in the quality of their music. It is this musical honesty and commitment to following his on vision that Ostrom continues to bring to his work. Tickets now on sale for this very special night.
