Rainer Brüninghaus (born 21 November 1949 in Bad Pyrmont, Lower Saxony) is a German jazz pianist and composer.

Born in Bad Pyrmont, Germany, Brüninghaus began in the jazz rock group Eiliff. In 1973 he joined the band of German jazz guitarist Volker Kriegel. In 1975 with bassist Eberhard Weber and Charlie Mariano he formed the band Colours.

In the 1980s he worked on his own projects, including Freigeweht with Kenny Wheeler, Continuum with Markus Stockhausen and Shadows & Smiles with Manfred Schoof.

Since 1988, Brüninghaus has frequently recorded and toured with the Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek as well as with Eberhard Weber and other artists on the ECM label.

Freigeweht, free blown?

When I first heard some this album it was on the radio and the announcer said the word loosely translates into set free by the wind, which sounds much better.

However you take it this is one of those intersections between Eno (Brian) style ambient and jazz. It's a very atmospheric album musically. Bruninghause makes good use of the synthesizer (model unknown) and a lot of his piano work is very textural. And since in addition to a drummer, he is accompanied only by Wheeler playing flugelhorn and Hoff on oboe and English horn, perhaps "free blown" is sort of a tongue in cheek joke.
