3.0 goodArchibald C. Burke | January 13th 09

The trio's redention of several Thelonius Monk compositions, the Esbjorn Svensson Trio continues to make popular jazz music more popular. I don't find this outing as personable (for obvious reasons) as the band's other original work, though they do put a nice spin on this music, and create an interest in me to check out more of Monk myself. This bands uncanny ability of bringing this style of music to a younger generation is what got me into listening to jazz music to begin with, and despite their now defunct status, continues to do so to this day. It was a tradegy when Svensson died, and the Trio's music is still some of the most ridiculous modern jazz I've had the pleasure of listening to.
