Johannes Enders »Sweet Freedom« – A Tribute to Sonny Rollins

Johannes Enders (tenor saxophone), Henning Sieverts (bass), Jorge Rossy (drums)

Sonny Rollins, one of the last living icons of modern jazz, was and is a role model for countless generations of saxophonists, including Johannes Enders, one of the most important European voices on the tenor saxophone. Reason enough to dedicate an entire album to Sonny Rollins, the "Saxophone Colossus", with arrangements of some of his greatest hits and to go on tour with this program! Joining him on this adventure are Munich bassist Henning Sieverts and Spanish percussion legend Jorge Rossy (Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Chick Corea, Mark Turner and many more). The title of the recording, "Freedom Suite," says a lot about one of the central characteristics of jazz: the urge for musical freedom, but also the urge for freedom of African-American people. In the recording year 1958, when the civil rights movement had gained momentum in the U.S., the record company decided to take the record with this title off the market for fear of politicizing the music.

The value of these compositions that are now considered classics and their refined arrangements can now finally be enjoyed live!
