Öberg's acquaintance with Svensson and drummer Magnus Öström makes this e.s.t. biography well worth reading:
"When the facts are mixed with personal experiences, when a look is taken behind the façade of e.s.t.'s success, as it were, and the curtain is lifted on the official band history, then the reader gets a different picture of the three friends Esbjörn, Magnus and Dan Berglund and their joint "jazz" piano trio."

Esbjörn Svensson Trio e.s.t.
When Esbjörn Svensson died in a diving accident in June 2008, the music world was deeply shocked.Jazz "had a huge loss to mourn." (STERN) With e.s.t., the Swedish pianist had left a stylistic mark on European jazz of the last ten years and made it heard worldwide.Svensson led the piano trio to new shores: At the highest level of interaction, jazz, pop, rock, classical music and Swedish folk music tradition merged into their own world of sound. The e.s.t. success story began in autumn 1991 when the pianist called bassist Dan Berglund and drummer Magnus Öström into his trio.17 years of intensive collaboration, countless acclaimed concerts and twelve album releases later, the press celebrates the Esbjörn Svensson Trio as "pop stars among jazz musicians" (WAZ). e.s.t. have opened the door to jazz for countless listeners all over the world and redefined an entire genre. Till Brönner is also aware of this significance: "The success of e.s.t. is a timeless document that even in the new millennium jazz must be counted among the freshest music of all. The collaboration of these three exceptional musicians will remain a shining example and benchmark for present and future generations for a long time to come." Jazz/pop star Jamie Cullum said of the band: "e.s.t. are a jazz trio, only I can take my non-jazz friends along to see them. Not because they are easy to listen to or un-experimental, but because their improvisational approach is stuffed full of contemporary, relevant and hip ideas. I truly, truly love this band." Or to conclude in the words of Pat Metheny: "Man, you have to check out e.s.t.! e.s.t. is one of my favourite bands."
