Dauner, an icon of German jazz, the pianist, keyboards player, composer, producer, whose interests straddled soul-jazz early on, jazz-rock extensively, Indian music and more into the freeness, was 84.

He was best known internationally for his work with Eberhard Weber and with the visionary United Jazz + Rock Ensemble that he co-founded in 1976.
