ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Memories" picks up where "Moments" left off! This CD is another great collection of relaxing Chapman Stick music, performed solo. Expect jazz, blues, rock and originals with some great effects thrown in to add even more intensity to the unusually rich, full-bodied tone of The Stick. Michael treats us with classics like Santana, Beatles and Hendrix (in addition to his soothing originals) all solo on this amazing new instrument.

P.S.
Ever wanted to see someone play the absolute heck out of The Chapman Stick? Look no further! Get Michael's new DVD (right here on CDBaby) and experience a 20 song, 80 minute live concert that Michael gave before a live audience and three digital cameras. Consider this: 90% of the population has never even heard about this amazing American instrument- let alone having seen a master performance. Now you can have this experience right on your TV screen at home. Bass, chords, melodies and leads all at once. Hey- is that popcorn in the microwave?

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.

Wonderful! Relaxing! Beautiful music!
I play this CD at my office and I work in close proximity to 5 others. All my office mates love this CD. I have fallen in love with the Chapman Stick and MICHAEL KOLLWITZ's talented playing of the instrument.

Beautiful music by a true master. Songs you have heard before as well as inspired originals. Espanola is a personal favorite of mine. If you've never heard the Chapman Stick you're in for a treat. A great instrument in the hands of a great player. This man is one talented musician. What you have to realize is that he is playing all 3 parts at once: lead, rhythm and bass. That's some kind of fantastic schizoid brain!! I own this one. Buy it, you won't regret it.

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!

Now my son wants one!!!
I should not have let my son hear this CD- he plays electric bass and now he wants a Chapman Stick!! (donations accepted).
