Christian Erber NDR: “ … Europe is coming together and a quartet from Berlin is providing the soundtrack. FOR FREE HANDS combines modern jazz arrangements with the sounds of the melting pot of Berlin and the rhythms of the Balkans.” URBAN JAZZ | FUSION
The quartet was on tour in Spain at the end of April.
Supported by the Initiative Musik Non-profit Project Company Ltd. with
project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media on the basis of a resolution passed by the German Bundestag.
FOR FREE HANDS represents the Berlin-based international jazz community. We have a new top class line-up whose rhythm section is conformed by the ECHO (German Jazz price) winner Diego Piñera (UY) on the drums and Roberto Badoglio (I) on the bass, who studied in New York with Matthew Garrison.
FOR FREE HANDS have previously won the Studiopreis Jazz, hosted by the Berlin Kultursenat. Christian Erber NDR: “Kaleidoscope Freedom“ can be interpreted as a freedom statement. The quote, “there is no freedom without mutual understanding” from the French philosopher Camus summarises this ideology. The CD is available now under LAIKA Records.
