ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Carnival" continues Michael's solo instrumental journey on the incredible Chapman Stick. On this CD he teams up on a couple of jazz standards with a talented jazz saxophonist. It's hard to believe that virtually all the music was produced on just one instrument. As one of The Stick's earliest pioneers, Michael is always looking for new ways to stretch the amazing instrument's capabilities even further. Enjoy this relaxing blend of both jazz and blues.

BIO
One of the instrument's earliest pioneers and one of Emmett Chapman's first students, Michael is a Chapman Stick virtuoso with 38 years experience. Played with both hands using a pianistic technique on a stringed instrument, the Chapman Stick is unique, versatile and probably the most expressive musical instrument ever devised. The result is music that sounds unlike any other instrument.

Devoted to spreading Knowledge of the Chapman Stick, Michael has performed at over a thousand festivals, fairs & corporate events combined. Carlos Santana said his music is "a gift from the heart". He's been an opening act for The Beach Boys and has introduced many to the new instrument including Mick Fleetwood, Herbie Hancock, Keith Emerson, Steve Morse and others.

His albums and music have spread worldwide and he's shared his talents with well over a million people in the last decade. His music has been featured on national radio, television appearances and a short documentary. His musical style encompasses light jazz, classic rock, latin, Hawaiian and other influences. With a catalog of 19 releases he is the most prolific Chapman Stick recording artist to date.

Awesome music. My new favorite
My son bought one CD at the Asparagus Festival in Stockton, CA. When he came home he said I have to get Carnival. We absolutely love the CD. Snappy, jazzy, can't believe it is one instrument with a little sax on the side. Awesome!

An Absolutely Outstanding Musician
This review is for Michael K as a musician, rather than for a specific album. I am a musician/bandleaer/booking agent myself, and I have known and played with Michael for over 15 years. He is a wonderful talent who plays with an open heart. You can feel his presence when listening to his music, and now that he is living in Hawaii, the beauty and heart come out even more. His musicianship is first class, and when listening to any of his tracks, you know that you are in the presence of someone very special. I highly recommend any of his albums or live performances, and that he plays the Chapman Stick is even more amazing!
