Our album “The passing on of the fire” was just CD of the week at jazz-fun.de – The renowned jazz portal says: “On a work peppered with fresh material, Andreas Brunn makes use of a broad instrumental arsenal. The result is a great album in the border area between jazz and fusion with jazz-rock excursions. I like the guitarist’s nimble solos in interplay with the saxophone, which is supported by Alaa Zouiten’s oud. Diego Piñera’s passionate drumming also adds energy and agility. A great album, we are thrilled!”
With Vladimir Karparov (BG), Diego Piñera (UY), Roberto Badoglio (I) and Andreas Brunn (D), FOR FREE HANDS is perceived as part of the international jazz community living in Berlin. Alaa Zouiten (MAR) is another very interesting instrumentalist who represents the musical traditions of Morocco and modern oud sounds in equal measure.
