    Debut album by new group The End, with Kjetil Møster (sax), Mats Gustafsson (sax), Sofia Jernberg (vocals), Anders Jana (guitars), and Greg Saunier (drums). The two songs Rare Noise posted sound fantastic....can't wait to hear the rest.

    I like what I heard, but I'm not sure it belongs to the jazz thread, despite the two sax players.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Without the vocalist, this would be an excellent lineup.

    New album by THE THING out tomorrow. Can't wait to hear the rest. The track they posted on Bandcamp smokes.

    Heh, yeah it can be a bit polarizing. The wife was giving me weird looks when I was playing it. I love it. I'm a fan of her work with Fire! Orchestra too.

    another group that would be better as an instrumental band.
    But great news re: The Thing!

    So, on first listens... This is easily as good as anticipated, if not better! The sound, as ever, is outstanding. And Esbjörn, in particular, is superb. Standout track, on initial hearing, is the glorious version of Eighty Eighty-Eight Days In My Veins. Again, with the caveat that this is early listening, I think that this one will get more regular spins than Live in Hamburg...

    Couple of other observations - the editing is slightly odd - the between-songs applause/introductions have been trimmed back, which, for me, slight detracts from the "experience" of the album as a record of a live concert. Second - the packaging of the cd is even more trimmed down - almost to the point of being insulting.

    What Live in London reminds me, all over again, is just what inventive soloists all three members were. In particular, Svenson, as well as being technically brilliant, was both remarkably creative, & uncannily melodic, in his improvising. For instance, around the 11'30" mark in Behind the Yashmak, after a passage where his solo is building in tension, there is a glorious release into a passage of lyrical beauty which just soars over the propulsive melody. For me, these are the moments of joyousness in their music which made e.s.t. utterly special.

    amazing stuff (well sort of... it's everything I love to hear, but nothing that's not been heard before), but no physical realease (at all)

    too bad, I guess I'll have to live without buying their music, then.

    ^^Trane I agree with what you said, nice to hear, but it's nothing that hasn't been heard before. Still if you like that type thing, more is better. You can download it at Bandcamp for around $6. and then burn it to CD-R if you want a physical copy.

    Agreed. This one is just fantastic--a big highlight of the year for sure.

    Couple of other observations - the editing is slightly odd - the between-songs applause/introductions have been trimmed back, which, for me, slight detracts from the "experience" of the album as a record of a live concert. Second - the packaging of the cd is even more trimmed down - almost to the point of being insulting.
    Those are minor-to-nonexistent flaws for me. I have just enough OCD that I sometimes trim applause and chatter in my digital files anyway. The editing on this one flows just fine to my ears. I quite like Berglund's cover design. The packaging sucks, true, though I'm used to that for many (seemingly most) CD releases these days.

    Single CD: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D4ZWCHX
    Deluxe (Double CD) https://www.amazon.com//dp/B07D4ZP9K3/


    I wonder if the usual anti-alternate takes crowd are going to complain about the alternate takes for something that hasn't come out yet.
