Soren Moller Bio
Some jazz musicians do one thing well, but that one thing is all
that they do. Not Soren Moller. Flexibility is the driving force
that motivates this Danish-born pianist-composer to
continually explore. Moller is as comfortable playing his
original compositions in a duo or quartet configuration as he is
interpreting the work of Miles Davis or Rachmaninoff in a trio
format or leading a big band.
Nor does Moller believe in surrounding himself solely with
collaborators who share similar backgrounds and outlooks.
Although he is from Copenhagen, Moller delights in working
with musicians from locales as far-flung as Mexico,
Zimbabwe, New Orleans, Scandinavia and China, in order to
bring a global glow to the music he envisions.
The result has quite often moved fans and critics alike.
Moller’s recordings, including The Clouds Above (2009), A
Tribute to Trane (2007), Playlist (2006) and Storytelling (2005)
have all garnered praise, as have his heralded performances
in Africa, Europe and New York City, where he has resided
Now, on Christian X Variations, Moller’s latest release on
Audial Records, this forward-thinking artist has created his
most ambitious work to date, incorporating instrumentation
and concepts from both the jazz and classical milieus
