Album: e.s.t, 301 (Act)

Recorded at Studios 301 in Sydney at the same sessions that produced Leucocyte, the first album to be released after pianist Esbjorn Svensson's death in a diving accident in 2008, this might well be the group's best ever record.

The opening is staggeringly good: Svensson's contrapuntal solo piano leading into "Inner City, City Lights", a masterpiece. Some surprisingly proper-jazz stuff follows before a bit of electro-squelch precedes "The Childhood Dream", another masterpiece.
