Appealing genre-defying Swedes EST in Athens for one show tonight at the Pallas Theater

Critics tend to disagree on whether EST, or the Esbjorn Svensson Trio, are a jazz band. Regardless of style, the Swedish trio has found an innovative musical path.

EST, the Esbjorn Svensson Trio, are described as a jazz trio, but their songs make the pop charts. The Swedish act’s video clips get aired on Scandinavian MTV. Away from home, their work appeals to an array of listeners, including jazz, rock and hip-hop fans.

EST play big stages that are livened up by rock-circuit antics like light shows and smoke machines. Whether it’s jazz or not, EST have found an innovative musical path. The talented trio, comprising pianist Esbjorn Svensson, Dan Berglund on double bass and Magnus Ostrom on drums, perform in Athens tonight, at the Pallas Theater.

European jazz act the Esbjorn Svensson Trio will present its atmospheric melodies with highlights of rock and electronica, at the Pallas Theater tonight. For ticket information, contact Virgin Megastores and Ticket Net, tel 210 8840600.
