The release of HOME.S., the only previously unreleased solo album by pianist Esbjörn Svensson, is nothing short of a sensation. The recordings were made at Svensson's Swedish home just a few weeks before his tragic death on June 14, 2008. Afterward, they remained undiscovered for nearly ten years on a hard drive in the personal archive of his wife, Eva Svensson. HOME.S. consists of nine focused piano songs, ranging from composed fragments to Svensson's unique, melodious style of improvisation. It is an intimate, soulful, and deeply personal work.
