Over twelve years in New York City, followed by five 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.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.
