Wolfgang Schalk Word Of Ear Album Release Concert


Tell Your Friends On Facebook!!

Hailed by critics in the US and Europe as “one of the best jazz guitarists”, Wolfgang Schalk delivers hard swinging and emotive compositions in the vein of the patriarchal jazz guitarist lineage while highlighting his membership in the elite club of todays creative voices. A guitarist with impeccable chops, Schalk's musicianship is illuminated on both electric and nylon-string guitar. Recalling the sounds of esteemed fret-board masters Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Pat Martino and Pat Metheny, Schalk expands on the tradition by playing dynamic music expressing thoughtfulness and original artistic abilities as one of today's authentic jazz guitarists.

Wolfgang Schalk's new release Word of Ear further showcases his talent as a consummate guitarist, playing with deep soulfulness and feeling. With the follow up to his critically acclaimed release "Wanted" (Frame Up Music 2008) the bi-coastal (NY/LA) jazz guitarist presents new music with an exciting band. Yet, in contrast to the familiar term "word of mouth", it is the music that speaks with its unique yet familiar language. This embodies the essence of Word of Ear as
Schalk reaffirms that "jazz is one of the deepest art-forms”. These concepts are fully realized within the recording's nine tracks. Leading his own bands, Schalk has recorded six albums as a leader with all original music and has worked with an impressive lineup of notable musicians, including 11-time Grammy award-winning Michael Brecker, Dave Kikoski, Geoffrey Keezer, Dave Carpenter, Rick Margitza and Marvin “Smitty Smith” to name a few. In 2005 Wolfgang
Schalk signed a recording deal with Universal Music and in 2008 founded his own record label Frame Up Music.
