John Bruce Wallace

Grail (Waving Bye Records)

John Bruce Wallace is a free jazz solo performer interested in freely improvised music with a focus on generating extended sound statements within the options afforded through solo performance. An acknowledged, accomplished guitar virtuoso working to create a new voice for the electric guitar, creating a new approach to the instrument, John Bruce Wallace is an incredibly challenging improviser, master of tonal dimension, expander of compositional style. Incorporating an aggressive, extremely individual wailing guitar sound that one has never heard before he invented a new technique of playing while continuously changing the pitch of his electric guitar. Utilizing sizzling electric distortion, thick and saturated tone, in free improvisation, he revamped the modern guitar tradition and, using the technical possibilities of his instrument, transferred it into an individual sound language tapping the human interior’s post pro-harmonic feedback. The music is clearly developed, powerful, and expressive, takes advantage of strange techniques, weaving very diverse textures into incredible legendary sounds. He has extended the boundaries of improvisation and presentation, breaking new ground for younger and inquisitive musicians.
