Esbjörn Svensson Trio – Leucocyte
Sadly Leucocyte is the last record of the extraordinary Esbjörn Svensson Trio. Pianist Svensson died tragically in a diving accident shortly before this innovative album released. Whether driving by Dan Berglund’s earthy bass tone and Magnus Öström’s hard-swinging drums or exploring electronic fusions, E.S.T. demonstrates the brilliant integration between the players and the fearless experiment as a group. The four-piece suite of “Leucoyte” sounds like an extension and expansion of the futuristic, spacious, atmospheric foundation Miles Davis had lain down on Bitches Brew.
