Wolfgang Schalk Quartet
Hailed by critics in the U.S. 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 today’s 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.
