A guitarist of significant musical relevance, Reg Schwager is a distinctly singular voice on his instrument. His playing reflects a thorough understanding of the entire history of the genre, from the pre-swing through the free jazz movements. Considered a child prodigy, Schwager was already performing with Peter Appleyard in his mid-teens. He has played with many different artists, and had a long time tenure in the George Shearing working group. He also holds the guitar chair in the Dave McMurdo Jazz Orchestra to which he is a regular contributor of compositions and arrangements
