“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, ft. special guests Wolfgang Puschnig on alto saxophone & the late great Bumi Fian on trumpet. 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

Leading his own bands, Wolfgang Schalk has recorded seven albums as a leader with mostly original music. His previous recordings received enthusiastic praise from journalists, musical peers and fans alike. Wolfgang Schalk has worked with an impressive lineup of notable musicians, including 15-time Grammy award-winning Michael Brecker, Dave Kikoski, Geoffrey Keezer, Rick Margitza, John Beasley, George Whitty, Dave Carpenter and Marvin “Smitty” Smith to name a few. Noted jazz writer Hank Bordowitz wrote about Wolfgang's NY dedut, “Michael Brecker delivered some of his finest blowing cutting loose on tracks like the album's title cut.”

Wolfgang Schalk - guitars, guitar synth.
