The Swedish drummer has a new album and brings his propulsive instrumental sound to Ronnie Scott’s on 26 April.
Magnus Öström is known to most global jazz listeners as the former drummer e.s.t., the most successful jazz group of the 2000s started with his childhood friend Esbjörn Svensson. However, since the latter’s untimely death in 2008, Öström has composed and performed his own music which arguably takes his signature sound in e.s.t. sound a stage further. The latest release - Parachute - is his third album, and he and his band will be playing Ronnie Scott’s live on 26 April.
