Bugge Wesseltoft / Magnus Öström / Dan Berglund 'Rymden' (N/S)

Three veterans of Nordic jazz, eleven acoustic-electronic compositions, a brand new band: Bugge Wesseltoft, Magnus Öström and Dan Berglund are Rymden!

They set new standards in European jazz: the Swedish trio e.s.t. (esbjörn svensson trio), formed in 1993, and New Conception Of Jazz, founded shortly afterwards in Oslo, Norway, by pianist Bugge Wesseltoft. Both bands combined the sounds and rhythms of club and pop culture with jazz improvisations. A young audience in Berlin, Paris and London discovered a whole new genre for themselves, and old-timers soon realized that authentic jazz doesn't necessarily have to come from the USA.

Bugge Wesseltoft: piano, fender rhodes
