Wolfgang Schalk
Frame Up Music

Superb outing by Austrian guitarist is fueled by the forcefully swinging rhythm section of pianist Geoff Keezer, late bassist Dave Carpenter and drummer Marvin “Smitty” Smith. A decided Pat Metheny-Pat Martino influence on the burning title track, the mellow bossa “Monroe Street” and the frantic “A Hip Bop.” “W46” is a nod to the towering influence of Wes Montgomery while the gorgeous ballad “And Harry Said Goodbye” is an homage to the late Austrian guitar great Harry Pepl.
