Compared to the earlier records, the sound here is somewhat more edgy and more down dirty. Less of air and "elegance", than on the earlier ones, yet more substance and raw energy, still sophisticated and beautiful though. I have the feeling this one will win over the others in the long run. The group is of course, still one of the most intresting groups in the world. So the record is a must have for all you EST-fans and also a must have for all those who hasn't discovered them yet. EST is experimental jazz-rock-pop for anyone with the slightest intrest in music. Seven days of falling, Mingling in the mincing-machine, Elevator of love, O.D.R.I.P are tracks you can play over and over again...

I knew they'd won plenty of awards (BBC International Jazz Artist of the year, for example) but it's only when I recently saw them live that I actually "discovered" EST. Not only can these guys really play, but their music really has a magical quality to it that words don't really do justice to.
Their sound varies from the simple and enchanting to the vibrant and uplifting, but it's always, always breathtaking. When you listen you know it's jazz, but it takes you to a place that most jazz albums simply don't. It's modern and fresh, but has something of the classical about it. Sorry, but it's hard to explain. Best thing to do is buy the album (or better still catch them live!) and you'll get what I'm on about.
If you like modern jazz, and want some music that will touch your soul, then this is definitely one for you.

Seven Days of Falling is full of space and lyrical genius, the trio clearly understand each other’s styles and complement them superbly. Highly recommended.

This is one of the most beautiful contemporary jazz albums I have heard in a long time.

The pianist, drummer and double bass player that make up the trio are completely attuned to eachother's playing and draw the most sensitive and imaginative sounds out of their instruments imaginable.

Some tracks are quiet and reflective, other loud and playful, but always, always the deeply intuitive and responsive playing draws you in.

The untimely loss of Esbjorn Svensson makes this album all the more poignant. What other heavenly music remains unplayed without him here?

The only way to describe the band known to many as EST (Esbjörn Svensson Trio) is innovative and amazing. These guys mix the grassroots jazz music and fusion beats to create some never before heard ear-candy. Wow. What talent! For the first time in a long while, fusion jazz meets talent and what a wonderful combination it is.

This is the first album I listened to from EST having previously being introduced to Scandinavian Jazz through the likes of Tord Gustavsen. The music is slightly different, pacier, how Radiohead might sound if they'd been a jazz trio and, on the whole, a delight. I will be exploring their other work next.

Format: Audio CD
Introduced to EST by their magical performance in St. George's Bristol,UK, this album recaptures the pleasure of the discovery of that evening. Seven Days of Falling reflects the trio's range of playing styles - the liquid, languid piano and bass playing and sensitive percussion of tracks like 'Ballad for the Unborn' and 'Believe, Beleft, Below' contrast sharply with the complex, driving rhythms of 'Elevation of Love' and 'Mingle in the mincing-machine'.
This is complex music made to sound simple in the hands of accomplished artists. The title track starts with a falling four note phrase which recurs in the piece, sometimes under the other instruments, sometimes as the melody, all the time with a rhythm that moves the work along steadily to its conclusion, fading in atmospheric sounds of piano and percussion.
EST play varied, inventive and eminently listenable-to music. Listen to the album - then get to see them live. You'll love it, I'm sure.

If you want a good starting point in the world of EST (or trio-jazz, for that matter), this may be it!
The sounds, grooves and themes are very diverse; from the country-gospel of 'Believe, beleft, below'(even sounds a little bit like Floyd Kramer at some points)to the jungle of 'Did they ever tell Cousteau'. Absolute highpoint is the exstatic 'Elevation of Love'with an almost scary bass-solo.
It has been said before; there may be 'faster' pianists, and technically more advanced drummers or bassists, but the interplay between the band-members is in a legue of their own!
