Jazz that Pushes Boundaries

With his brand new project According to Freedom Quintet, Daniel Sommer leads an international supergroup playing Sommer's original compositions.

According to Freedom creates a framework that liberates the individual musician's voice. The compositions move through minimalist chords in Daniel Sommer's characteristic compositions. Added to this are two-part melodies that move in and out of each other in simple compositions that allow the musicians to unfold personally and in the moment.

At the heart of According To Freedom lies the moment when artists put their vanity aside and challenge their own boundaries. The moment when they face themselves and others to create the most intimate and honest space. A place where communication and the very act of listening are essential.

For years, Daniel Sommer has moved effortlessly across borders and musical landscapes. His responsive and empathic style characterizes a musical sensitivity and personality that has taken him far.
