Ex-e.s.t. Bassist Dan Berglund Interviewed at AAJ...And More!

Bassist Dan Berglund became known as one-third of Swedish jazz superstar group e.s.t. (Esbjrn Svensson Trio), with CDs including From Gagarin's Point of View (ACT, 1999), Good Morning Susie Soho (ACT, 2000), Strange Place for Snow (ACT, 2002) and e.s.t.. Live in Hamburg (ACT, 2007)--one of The Times UK's top albums of the last decade--culminating in Leucocyte (ACT, 2008). The trio's steady rise in the jazz sphere was abruptly truncated by pianist Svensson's tragic death in a scuba diving accident, in the summer of 2008.

Vastly shaken by the passing of his partner and friend, Berglund retreated to Stockholm, and was left rudderless for a time. This hiatus brought him back to his roots in rock, however, but with the experience of e.s.t. in his mind and heart. The result is Dan Berglund's Tonbruket (ACT, 2010), a foray into rock, fusion and jazz.

AAJ Contributor Elena Gillespie spoke with Berglund about dealing with the loss of Svensson and the genesis of Tonbruket in her informative interview, Dan Berglund: Back from the Dark, published today at AAJ

AAJ Senior Editor Chris May weighed in on Tonbruket when it was released back in January, 2010, and you can read AAJ Managing Editor John Kelman's take on the album in a new review, also published today at AAJ.
