For Jazz Times the Wolfgang Schalk Quartet recalls the flexibility of the 1960s Miles Davis Quintet" and the Austrian daily Die Presse calls him easily one of Europe's best guitarists."
All About Jazz writes: He plays with an attractive lyricism, enabling some of his phrases to float over the rhythm section, and one of his most intriguing strategies is a seemingly effortless tendency to insert unexpected chordal passages into a single-note line...Yet, as good as these guitar solos are (and they are very, very good), the compositions themselves are what first catch the ear... If other musicians pick up on these tunes, every single one of them has the potential to become a jazz standard...Highly recommended."
