    Has anyone here heard about them? I heard a friend of mine playing some stuff on piano a while ago, and after I asked he said it's by EST.. I looked them up and tried some stuff on youtube, and I'd like to get some albums for further inspection, but as always happens with jazz artists- they have several, and I don't know where to start.
    So, could anyone recommend me an album or two? some songs?
    Thanks :)

    I love EST. Kind of a chilled out metheny-vibe som times. The Retrospective CD (a best-of compilation) has a lot of the best stuff, as for example From Gagarin's Point Of View.

    I love EST. I would highly suggest getting Tuesday Wonderland and Leukocyte to start off with. Both are excellent albums. It's a shame that Esbjorn Svennson left us so early. He had so much more to give to this world.

    Tuesday Wonderland is an awesome album. I would also recommend Aaron Park's Invisible Cinema if you like that kind of stuff.

    Seven Days of Falling. All of his albums are pretty good.

    I'd have to agree. I started with Strange Place For Snow, haven't looked back :) I really loved the set of live videos that are floating around on the tube but haven't managed to find a DVD of them which I'm a little sad about. Great performances, I always think live is better with jazz.

    Thanks for all the answers guys! I think this should be enough for some research :)

    Another vote for Tuesday Wonderland. Any of the newer albums will be a good start, except for the latest, posthumously released - Leucocyte (that one is also awesome, but different and much darker in tone).

    I absolutely love there music, I haven't listened to them in ages so thanks for reminding me, always love to rediscover bands. I just checked out Tuesday Wonderland(one of the few albums I never got by them, man was I missing out) and love it so far. I'm really not sure what to recommend as I have enjoyed everything I've heard from them immensely. Everything previously mentioned is all good so give that a go.
