Hans Glawischnig Contrabajo Hans Glawischnig nació en Graz, Austria en octubre 22 de 1970. Su padre fue un pianista respetado, líder de big band y educador, que inculcó a Hans desde temprana edad interés por la música. Hans con tan sólo 6 años ya pertenecía a la clase de los alumnos talentosos de la Academia de Música de Graz. En 1983, Hans comenzó a tocar el bajo eléctrico y en 1986 agregó el contrabajo, que se convertiría en su voz musical principal. De 1986 a 1988 estudió en el Departamento de Jazz de la Academia con el reconocido bajista estadounidense Wayne Darling. Después de la secundaria Hans se trasladó a los Estados Unidos para aceptar una beca en Berklee School of Music. Durante sus años en Boston perfeccionó sus evidentes habilidades: el dominio de variados géneros musicales, musicalidad fuerte e imperante naturaleza musical. En 1992 luego de recibir el premio B.A. magna cum laude, Hans se trasladó a Nueva York para unirse al programa de maestría en la Manhattan School of Music con una beca. En HSH se encontró con muchos de los músicos con los que ahora colabora regularmente. Mientras se mantenía tocando como independiente en todo el área de Nueva York, fue invitado a tocar con el mundialmente conocido Ray Barretto y su ensamble New World Spirit. A pesar de que Hans había tocado música latina, compartir el escenario con este legendario artista le dio la oportunidad de perfeccionar la interpretación del ritmo, la improvisación y la interacción musical. Con este grupo grabó dos álbumes: Contact! Y Live at Europa con Blue Note Records. Desde entonces músicos como Paquito D'Rivera, Dave Samuels y Bobby Sanabria lo integraron a sus ensambles rápidamente, mientras continuaba compartiendo actuaciones con Rick Margitza, Dial Garry, Billy Harper, Richie Beirach, Billy Hart, Joe Locke, Dave Binney, Rogers Adán, Steffon Harris, Claudio Roditi, Billy Drewes, Jamey Haddad, Brian Lynch, Phil Woods y Acuña Claudia, por nombrar algunos. En 1998 Hans fue invitado ha unirse al sexteto David Sánchez con este grupo recorrió el mundo y grabó dos álbumes para Columbia: Melaza (para lo cual escribió Hans Orbitando) y Travesía, que empujó a la dotación de jazz latino a sus límites y llenó al grupo de grandes elogios de la crítica, así como dos nominaciones a los Grammy Award. En los años siguientes Hans siguió tocando y grabando con muchos de sus colegas. Miguel Zenón firmó con Marsalis Music en el 2002 y Hans participó en la elaboración de cuatro grabaciones de la aclamada Ceremonial, Hibaro, despierto y el nominado al Grammy This Plena. 2006 fue otro año decisivo, Chick Corea contrató a Hans por recomendación de Bob Belden (quien produjo el Homenaje James Moody grabación de los registros Saboya, en la que participó Hans) para participar en un proyecto para conmemorar el 250 aniversario del famoso compositor Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Para esta ocasión, el Sr. Corea compuso Por Los Continentes, una obra en seis movimientos para cuarteto de jazz y orquesta de cámara. El conjunto fue llevado por toda Europa para el verano de 2006. Hasta la fecha Hans ha participado en más de 50 grabaciones y sigue llevando a cabo en todo el mundo, además de dar clases magistrales y clases particulares. English Hans Glawischnig Bass Hans Glawischnig was born in Graz, Austria on October 22,1970. His father, a respected pianist, big band leader and educator, instilled in Hans an early interest in music, enrolling him in 1976 as a violinist in the talented pupils class of the Academy of Music in Graz. In 1983, Hans began playing the electric bass and by 1986 added the double bass which was to become his main musical voice. From 1986 to 1988 he studied part-time at the Jazz Department of the Academy with renowned American bassist Wayne Darling. After high school Hans relocated to the United States to accept a scholarship at Berklee School of Music. During his years in Boston he honed the skills he is known for: mastery of varied musical genres, strong musicianship and an inquisitive musical nature. He studied with bassist Bruce Gertz, played and recorded with faculty members Hal Crook, Phil Wilson and Greg Hopkins and accompanied several visiting clinicians, including drummers Steve Smith and Casey Scheuerell. He also was presented with several Professional Music Awards and in 1992 he received his B.A. magna cum laude. That same year Hans made his move to New York to join the M.A. program at Manhattan School of Music on scholarship. At MSM he met many of the musicians he now regularly works with while studying electric bass with Jeff Andrews. Throughout his studies he gave lessons privately and tutored students for their harmony and ear training exams as a means of additional income. Word got out of his talents long before his graduation in 1994, and he was already turning down gigs in order to complete his studies. Hans' first break came in 1995 when he was hired to fill the bass chair in Bobby Watson's Urban Renewal band on the recommendation of fellow student Steffon Harris, playing alongside New York veterans Victor Lewis, Mark Soskin, Rachel Z, Sammy Figueroa and Steve Kroons. A stint with Maynard Ferguson's Big Bop Nouveau was to follow later that year. 1996 was to be a pivotal year for Hans. While he kept busy performing as a freelancer around the New York area, he was invited to play with Ray Barretto's renowned New World Spirit ensemble. Though he had played Latin music throughout his days in New York, his exposure to this legendary artist helped Hans refine his interpretation of rhythm, improvisation and musical interaction. The group toured extensively and recorded two albums, Contact! for Blue Note records and Live in Europe (presently unavailable in the United States). Further engagements with Paquito D'Riviera, Dave Samuels and Bobby Sanabria followed swiftly, as did performances with Rick Margitza, Garry Dial, Billy Harper, Richie Beirach, Billy Hart, Joe Locke, Dave Binney, Adam Rogers, Steffon Harris, Claudio Roditi, Billy Drewes, Jamey Haddad, Brian Lynch, Phil Woods and Claudia Acuna, to name a few. Another great opportunity presented itself when Hans was invited to join David Sanchez' Melaza Sextet in 1998. The group toured the globe and recorded two albums for Columbia - Melaza (for which Hans penned Orbitando) and Travesia - which pushed the envelope of Latin Jazz to its limits and brought the group great critical acclaim as well as two Grammy Award nominations. In 2001, Hans recorded a number of his own compositions, which were released as Common Ground on the Spanish label Fresh Sounds/New Talent in the summer of 2003. Several of his originals and arrangements were recorded by David Sanchez and Ken Hatfield (The Traveler for Music for Guitar and Bass on Arthur Circle records). For a reunion with Ray Barretto on Tribute to Art Blakey (on Sunnyside Records) Hans contributed an arrangment of Buh's Bossa, and a recent session for Brian Lynch features the original composition Beholding. Recent projects included recording sessions with James Moody for an upcoming album on Savoy records and extensive touring with Claudia Acuna, Mark Murphy and David Sanchez.
