Album Notes
... the bottom and the top - the creations in between - wide country - dense city - dense country - wide city - all in there - in the sound - all for one - one output - together -- liner note by Wolfgang Puschnig

“The Be Hop Hip Bop” is Wolfgang Schalk's debut album as a band leader. The CD features all original compositions of Wolfgang performed with his Austrian fusion all-star ensemble. Recorded and released in 1993, the album has been remastered by sound wiz Reinhard Buchta and reissued with a new package design in 2008.

“He already attracted attention with his first album with the tongue-twisting title “The Be Hop Hip Bop”, which was characteristic of his epoch-making Jazz sound.” - Concerto

Wolfgang Schalk, resident in New York since 1997, went a typically uncompromising way from Austria to New York City. Schalk further developed his style audibly in the cosmopolitan urban pulse of New York and succeeded in establishing himself in its stimulating yet hard-to-survive environment. Leading his own bands, Schalk has recorded four CDs with all original music released under his name including "The Second Third Man" featuring 11-time Grammy award-winning Michael Brecker on tenor saxophone. His current quartet features an impressive lineup of notable musicians, including Dave Kikoski on piano, Andy McKee on bass and Ian Froman on drums. With this same band Schalk released “Rainbows in the Night” in 2002 and in 2005 he signed a recording deal with Universal Music for the release of his new album “Space Messengers”.
