Austrian Jazz/Fusion Guitarist Gerald Gradwohl To Release New Album “… Or What?” May 3, 2024 

Adam Nitti, Kirk Covington, Bill Evans, Gergo Borlai and Stephan Maass. What sounds like a “Who’s Who” in the present jazz-rock/fusion scene, is actually the lineup for electric guitarist Gerald Gradwohl’s new album “…Or What?  

Gerald has worked with Kirk Covington since 2002, when they recorded the album “ABQ” with Bob Berg, and Gary Willis, the album making big waves in the fusion scene. The idea to make a mutual album with Adam and Kirk was given birth during the tour in 2014 and could now finally be realized this year. 

Modern recording techniques have made it possible to capture these exceptional musicians together on this album. The sessions and what was captured cannot be described in words here……you’ll need to hear the recording. It’s stunning. 

A Jazz, Rock and Funk gumbo combined to make an energetic, and exciting project, that not only showcases the amazing instrumental capabilities of these musicians, but also features the exceptional musicality, and the extraordinary chemistry that this band creates together.

Says Gerald, “I started doing this parallel to my last album “Episode 6” and this is maybe the reason why it took that long. The recordings took place between 2020 and 2023 and everybody recorded in his own studio at home. I wanted to prove that it is possible to make an album with a cool vibe although we were not recording together in one room as on all my records before. The music is influenced by all the musicians and records that I listened to and has a strong Funk and Rock influence. The harmonic concept/background comes from Jazz but always with a big amount of Groove and Power.”

The outstanding guest appearances of Bill Evans, Gergo Borlai and Stephan Maass give proof of Gerald’s top-ranking in the jazz and fusion scene today! 

“Working at the highest level of quality, jazz meets rock!”
