ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pianist and composer WolfgangSeligo is very much at home in many divergent musical styles.His original music is influenced by jazz, rock, and modernclassical music and driven by a funky and powerful sound fromthe piano. He brought his work onto theinternational stage in various formations but also solo. He gaveconcerts in the Forbidden City of Peking, on the Red Square ofMoscow, but also in Morocco, Senegal, Chicago and Washington.Other performances include festivals and concert series in Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States.

After jazz studies in Vienna, Wolfgang Seligo gathered his first experiences as a composer, producer and musician in the early 1990s. In addition to his participation in various ensembles in the Viennese scene, he cofounded together with Dhafer Yousseff and Gerhard Reiter the ethnic jazz project "Ziryab" (Extraplatte) which toured in Austria and Germany. He also pursued other activities, including individual activities as a composer and a co-producer for some regional music projects (Ariola BMG, EMI) and working as an advertising and media composer for radio, TV and cinema. But since around 2000, Wolfgang Seligo has been dedicating himself to concert piano music in combination with jazz,rock and improvised music and elements of classical music and toured with his music throughout Europe and Asia aswell as Africa and the United States.The liaison of improvised music with classical and contemporaryclassical music plays a predominant position in the compositionsof Wolfgang Seligo. Since 2007 Seligo has been playing pianosolo concerts and concerts with classical instrumentation (e.g.cello) and improvisation playing a significant role. This wasfollowed by some music releases and the solo piano work"Alternative Jazz Piano", for jazz pianists and classically trained pianists.

"Nevertheless, Seligo is obviously extremely talented, both incomposition and performance. It seems like he almost cannot helpplaying in such a bravura manner, but, because there are so manythings happening, it is relatively easy to get beyond thesurface and enjoy the very fine playing." Budd Kopman (NewYork) for allaboutjazz magazine

Steinway Austria Magazine:
"Bei Wolfgang Seligos Kompositionen treffen sichJazz, Ethno, Klassik und Rock in einem groovigen, funkigen Soundgarniert mit Elementen freier Improvisation. Diese etwas andere,eben "alternative" Mischung erzeugt einen organischen, wunderbarkonsumierbaren Piano-Jazz, wie er nur selten zu hören ist."
