South Quartet

After having spent 15 years in Belgium, Peer Baierlein decided to move back to Germany in 2012. He gave up his Belgian quartet and wanted to start with something new. As he was born in Stuttgart and also spent his youth there, Peer decided to ask some of the finest musicians of this area to join him. Ull Möck (piano), Jens Loh and Markus Bodenseh (double bass) and Matthias Daneck (drums) belong to the new generation of jazz players who are swinging into the 21st century with music that knows no prejudice, and which adheres to tradition while at the same time desires to express an individual creativity. The quartet ventures into unknown ground and follows unexplored paths.
Music which readily allows itself to be called jazz, but which also stands out through its open-mindedness to other music styles, yet, all the while marked by authenticity and carefree creativity.
Playing without pretention and working well together, the four musicians continue to evolve with their own repertoire and sound – giving them an unmistakable identity. The taste, the swing and the drive with which this group creates space, leaves the listener with a wonderful feeling.
