Live Jazzschmiede Düsseldorf
Wilhelm Geschwind studied classical guitar at the Academy of Music in Cologne, and although graduating with honors, he decided „subito allegramente“ to end his career as a classical artist.
He then turned his interest to an old passion – the bass – and in the following years advanced to a very busy musician, playing in different bands,both as a studio musician, and together with well-known and lesser-known stars live and on television.
Besides pop and rock music, jazz has always played an important role in Geschwinds’ development as a guitarist and bassist.
At the present, on his piccolo double bass, an instrument developed and built for him by master luthier Siggi Jäger, Geschwind has finally found his own unique sound; one of melodic, rhythmic and percussive virtuosity.
