I Juni måned udkommer Esben Brandts Debut album “Silence and Sound”.  Albummet byder på 8 helt nye kompositioner der tager udgangspunkt i den energisk melankolske klang-æstetik der kendetegner den nordiske Jazz. Pladen er indspillet i Panhuset i Stockholm af en kvartet bestående af internationalt anerkendte Jazzmusikere fra Sverige, Danmark og Estland. Mødet mellem musikere og nationale musiktraditioner udvikler en helt særlig energi og skber en skrøbelig sound der i den grad klæder Esbens smukke, iørefaldende og overraskende melodier.
