- e.s.t.´s concerts are legendary and have won the band fans worldwide also outside the jazz field. Their approach to present their music together with a distinctive light show that reminds of rock and pop shows and their across-the-board use of stylistic elements and subtle use of electronics is unique in its way, has created an own genre and has paved the way for a whole lot of followers. On a worldwide scale e.s.t. are acknowledged as Europe´s leader in jazz, documented recently by a cover story in the US jazz magazine "Downbeat" - the first for a European band since the magazine was founded some 75 years ago.
e.s.t. are known for their strive for perfection, their innovative power, but also their rigid quality control when it comes to their albums. So again you can expect the best in sound quality, musicality and performance.
This sold out concert in Hamburg on November 22, 2006 took place towards the end of the German leg of the Tuesday Wonderland world tour. Altogether the band performed more than 100 shows in 24 countries to an audience of well above 200,000 people during that tour. The recording reflects the concert one to one, no songs were taken away and the order of the songs as they were performed on that night is intact as well. Impatiently awaited, e.s.t. live in Hamburg is the first live-album of the band in twelve years, and it is certain not to disappoint the fans. Besides containing live versions of seven songs from Tuesday Wonderland, it features three further highlights from the e.s.t. repertoire.
Be invited to take your seat in the beautiful Laeiszhalle in Hamburg and listen to a night full of music by e.s.t.!
