Esbjörn Svensson Trio - Winter in Venice
Catalogue No.: ACTLP90071
Release Date: 30th October 2020
The release of these three albums - ‘Good Morning Susie Soho’, ‘Plays Monk’ and ‘Winter In Venice’ - on vinyl brings a sense of completeness. With these releases, the entire catalogue of the fourteen live and studio albums made by the band and released
on ACT is now be available.
These LPs are the portrait of a unique and astonishingly influential band. Their years on the ACT label, from 1996 until the tragically early death of Esbjörn Svensson in 2008 were “a period of almost continuous artistic growth” - The Jazz Mann. They often played around a hundred live shows a year. Their album sales now approach the one million mark. They appealed to a far larger audience than jazz normally reaches. And yet they also left their mark on the generation of jazz musicians who followed them.
Stuart Nicholson described ‘Good Morning Susie Soho’ as “darkly lyrical [and] fiercely contemporary.” It was named Album Of The Year For 2000 by Jazzwise magazine. For this album, the vinyl master was made from analogue tapes by
Classe Persson at CRP Recording.
‘Plays Monk’ is from before the band’s international breakthrough. It is the only e.s.t. release where the band play not their own compositions but music from a jazz legend.
‘Winter In Venice’ was originally released in 1997, awarded the Swedish Grammy in 1998 for Best Jazz Album and was then rereleased by ACT in 1999.
For the three new albums, lacquer disc cutting was done by Sidney Claire Meyer at Emil Berliner Studios in Berlin.
