For Free Hands @ Jazzfestival Bergmannstraße


Christian Erber NDR : “ ... Europe is comming together and this quartet from Berlin is providing the soundtrack . For Free Hands combine modern jazz arrangements with the traditional sounds and rhythms of the Balkans. “Kaleidoscope Freedom“ is the title of their fourth album. Because “there is no freedom without mutual understandment” says the band quoting the French philosopher Albert Camus.
JAZZPODIUM: “Andreas Brunn is a dedicated guitarist and composer, reconciling divisions and taking clear inspiration from the East, especially Bulgaria. (…) The track “Perpetuum five” is an electrified mix of post-bop, edge, anger, madness and jazz. Karparov’s playing is lively and striking: in the slightly uncomfortable “Magic Friday” his tendency to occasional lyricism and Brunn’s occasional sudden outburts provide an exciting contrast.”
Modernícolas: FOR FREE HANDS @ MALAGA JAZZ FESTIVAL: “... a New Way of understanding Jazz ... Synergy is the word to define this Berlin quartet. For Free Hands represents contemporary jazz: dissonant sounds grow into beautiful melodies that hang over a richly varied rhythmic pattern. This impressive quartet unite different cultures with their music to create a hard-hitting album.”
