Album Description

“Obsession is my tribute to the dedication to music and art. It is also a mantra for the responsibility which comes attached to it. It is something you have in your veins and something that is always with you, no matter what you are doing. And the process itself is about the creating because it needs to be done. It is not about what the result will be or could be. Of course, the more fun the doing is, the more fruitful the music might become. In this case, making this recording was one of the most joyful experiences I ever had - in composing and recording the music as well. This is also a result of the great chemistry and fun with Carlitos, Andy, Gene and Luisito.” - Wolfgang  Wolfgang Schalk’s new recording ”Obsession” features ten original pieces written by the Austrian guitarist, his eighth album as a leader. Schalk’s original pieces are solid and thought provoking. The music is driven by Wolfgang’s distinctive sound and edgy conception, demonstrating his virtuosity on both, arch top and on nylon string acoustic guitar. Downbeat magazine has noted “…A guitarist’s guitarist. No matter how frenetic or soothing his playing may become, Schalk always plays with a master improviser’s sense of quest.” The execution of the music from Wolfgang and his stellar band strikes a strong chord — Andy Langham (piano), Carlitos Del Puerto (bass), Gene Coye (drums), and Luisito Quintero (percussion). These players sound so good together on this album that a spiritual chemistry was formed!
