A gorgeous and uplifting journey through the collective mind of the Esbjörn Svensson Trio! The cycles of changing frequency coming from the drum set effects pedals fit the melody perfectly. The playing here is as relaxed and full as it gets, while maintaining a characteristic churning movement from the piano arpeggios. Svensson's inspiration from Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier is no longer apparent. There is a uniqueness in this man's music that shines on.
