Esbjörn Svensson R.I.P.

One of Sweden's foremost jazz musician, pianist Esbjörn Svensson, is dead. He died after Saturday's diving accidents at Stockholm in the Stockholm archipelago.
Pianist and jazz music Esbjörn Svensson died late yesterday after dykolyckan in Stockholm in Värmdö, south of Stockholm. He was 44 years old. Esbjörn Svensson leaves a wife and two children.

I saw E.S.T. only once, that was last year in Souillac. Not bad but they used to much effects for my taste. I have a recording of one of their previous concerts in Belgium which pleased me more.

R.I.P. Mister Svensson...
