Originally released in 1997, "Winter in Venice" was the band’s fourth album and is now on vinyl for the first time. At the same time it was the group’s first album, in that it was the first independent profile that exhibits the three musicians in their classic lineup. The 13 original compositions show them as sensitive masters of communication with the penchant for transforming simple, pretty melodies into complex networks of motifs. Sometimes balladic, sometimes joyously swinging, "Winter in Venice" lays out a lively tonal tapestry which, despite its suggestive title, seems to have little to do with the morbid feeling that exists in Venice during that dark time of year. It received the Swedish Grammy in 1998 as best jazz album of the year, and on top of it all, it helped Svensson to the title of Songwriter of the Year.
