ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Collage is a collaboration of three highly accomplished jazz guitarists: Mike Sunjka, Paul Chester and Mike Wheeler. The CD is a collection of all original music featuring stunning acoustic guitar and electric sounds. You will hear only guitar on this CD, a conscious choice by the musicians, to allow them to be able to interact in a very intimate environment. The music is mellow and yet avoids the cliches of "smooth" jazz. The compositions have substance and are intelligently written. This is a CD that can be enjoyed by novice and veteran jazz listeners alike.
Mikeys Waltz, a Wheeler composition features Wheeler and Sunjka in a jazz waltz setting.
Hypnotize Me written by Paul Chester showcases the acoustic talents of Chester and Sunjka.
Brazilian influenced Pelourinho penned by Sunjka finds Chester and Sunjka on nylon string guitars.
Uptempo Bumble Bee features Chester and Wheeler on acoustic guitars.
Earth Tones, a Mike Wheeler composition, showcases Wheeler on electric accompanied by Sunjka on steel string acoustic.
Now It Can Be Told written by Sunjka, again features Chester and Sunjka in an acoustic setting.
Chester and Wheeler are featured on the classically influenced Paul Chester composition, The Visit.
Sunjka, joined by Mike Wheeler, pays tribute to traditional jazz with his medium swing What Else Do you Do?
Mike Wheeler's Meadows, a sensitive acoustic duet follows featuring Chester and Wheeler.
The CD ends with the funky I've Been a Little Nervous Lately, written by Sunjka. All three guitarists solo on the finale.
You will reach for this CD on different occasions: sometimes to relax or to provide the perfect atmosphere, other times to appreciate the artistry of these three extremely talented guitarists.

In the Mark Johnson/Metheny/Scofield/Frisell vein of guitar duets
All three of these guys are incredible players. Their writing is intelligent and sharp. You will not be disappointed in this cd! Bebop, Brazilian, Blues, and everything in between. The recording is top notch and the live energy is almost tangible in the recordings, which was expertly done by Sunjka. If you like the Bass Desires Mark Johnson recordings or the Metheny/Scofield recordings you'll LOVE this cd.
