In the fall of 2012, Dr. Wallmann moved to Madison, Wisconsin to become Director of Jazz Studies at UW Madison’s School of Music where he is the inaugural holder of the John and Carolyn Peterson Chair in Jazz Studies. Prior to his appointment at UW Madison, Wallmann served for five years as Director of Jazz Studies at California State University East Bay in the East Bay. Over twelve years previously in New York City, followed by his years in the San Francisco Bay Area, Wallmann established himself as a prolific performer in styles as diverse as mainstream jazz and electric fusion, American spirituals, Cantonese pop music and 20th century classical music. Joining Wallmann in the ensemble is Russ Johnson, trumpet; John Christensen, bass and Keith Lienert, drums.
The concert “…will be a combination of my compositions including pieces from my upcoming album release “The Town Musicians” and compositions by some of the great jazz pianists: Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock and McCoy Tyner,” says Dr. Wallmann.
