Wolfgang Schalk 'ObSession' (A/USA)

Wolfgang Schalk: guitars
Oliver Kent: piano, fender rhodes
Danny Ziemann: bass
Vladimir Kostadinovic: drums, percussion

We start the live-stream (real time, stream is not on demand!) about 1/2 h before the show starts. By clicking on "Now Live" a window opens, where you can watch the concert free of charge and without any registration. If you want, you can support this project with "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the real & virtual club!

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 Del Puerto, Andy Langham, Gene Coye and Luisito Quintero. (Wolfgang Schalk)
