Birthday: 15.04.1967: J.M.Hauer music school-classical guitar: Jazz guitar study in Vienna - diploma in 1989 w. first class honours: Teacher for jazz guitar at the Joseph Haydn Conservatory/Eisenstadt (A) since 1991: Teacher for electric guitar at the music school Eisenstadt (1993-98) : Head of Jazz department J.H. Conservatory Eisenstadt since 2006. Gerald Gradwohl played concerts and festivals all over the world: Wiesen, Montreal, Madrid, Mexico, Warschau, Washington, just to name a few. Highlights of his career are the collaboration with the grammy nominated TANGERINE DREAM, and his solo record ABQ that he recorded in 2002 with the great BOB BERG and the TRIBAL TECH rhythm section Gary Willis and Kirk Covington. On his recent CD “Sally Beth Roe”(2009) guitarist he pulls all the stops of his musical skills. “As much composition as necessary and as much improvisation as possible” seems to be the dogma and the point of view of fusion-music of today for this worldwide known and acknowledged composer and performer. © http://gradwohl.at/index.php?id=176&L=1
