WOLFGANG MUTHSPIEL BIO

Wolfgang Muthspiel (born 2 March 1965 in Judenburg, Styria) is an Austrian jazz guitarist and composer. He is the brother of the trombonist and pianist Christian Muthspiel.

He started playing the violin at six and began study of the guitar as a teenager. After studying classical and jazz guitar in Graz, he completed his studies at the New England Conservatory and the Berklee College of Music. His high reputation, even in young years, made him the replacement of Pat Metheny in Gary Burton‘s band.

In subsequent years Muthspiel played with many notable jazz musicians, including Maria Joao, Dave Liebman, Peter Erskine, Paul Motian, Bob Berg, Gary Peacock, Don Alias, Gary Burton, Mick Goodrick, Larry Grenadier and John Patitucci. Later a collaboration with famous Norwegian jazz singer Rebekka Bakken followed.

In 2002 Muthspiel returned to Vienna, founding his record label Material Records, which focuses on publishing own records as well as those of young aspiring musicians.

Besides his own band, the Wolfgang Muthspiel 4tet, he is collaborating with Brian Blade in the project “Friendly Travelers” and with Ralph Towner and Slava Grigoryan in a new Guitar Trio named MGT.

In 2003 he won the European Jazz Prize

Jazz bassist Eddie Gomez,was born October 4, 1944 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He grew up in New York and played in the Newport Festival Youth Band from 1959 to 1961, and was later educated at Juilliard.

Time Magazine lauded: “Eddie Gómez has the world on his strings”. Eddie Gómez would spend a total of eleven years with Bill Evans Trio which included performances throughout the United States, Europe, and the Orient, as well as dozens of recordings. Two of the Trio’s recordings won Grammy awards.

In addition to working as a studio musician for many famous jazz musicians, he has recorded as a leader for Columbia Records, Projazz and Stretch. Most of his recent recordings as a leader are co-led by jazz pianist Mark Kramer.

Eddie Gomez will be supported at this concert by Hong Kong born guitarist Teriver Cheung, who is making a name for himself on stages around the world including USA, UK, Poland, Singapore, China, Japan, Taiwan, Mexico to name but just a few countries. Currently based in New York, Teriver has played with many world renowned musicians including Eddie Gomez, Bernard Wright, George Garzone, Billy Drummond and Taylor Eigsti.
