    The Lugubrious Youth Of Lucky Luke - Bugge Wesseltoft, Magnus Öström, Dan Berglund
RYMDEN - The new super group of three major minds in European music history.
With pianist Bugge Wesseltoft championing the cause of "European Jazz as its own art form" RYMDEN sees him starting the piano trio format with the Swedish rhythm section consisting of Magnus Öström and Dan Berglund (e.s.t.).
The groups Bugge's New Conception of Jazz and e.s.t. (esbjorn svensson trio) moved in different orbits around the same musical planet, and produced some of the best recorded music and performances that spanned the 90s into the new millennium.
The influence of both groups was profound and can still be seen and heard today in the emerging young talents from Scandinavia and beyond, many of whom have found encouragement and a home on Wesseltoft's Jazzland Recordings label. e.s.t. remain regarded as one of the best live acts of the era, and they hold their position as the most successful artist in European jazz.
Both groups were explorers, experimenters testing the limits of existing forms or trying to discover
new ones.
That a crossover between these two powerhouses of 21st century European jazz should occur is not surprising, although perhaps long overdue. With the formation of RYMDEN (meaning "space" – as in "outer space" or "universe"), we are presented with a music that is innately Scandinavian in mood and attitude.
