Founded in 2011, St. Paul/Minneapolis based trio TALKING STRINGS is masterfully blending
and balancing the poles of traditions and innovations of jazz, classical music, and a variety
of international music styles. Their repertoire consists of French Gypsy Hot Club style jazz,
East European Gypsy Music, Brazilian bossa nova and more, combined with their original
compositions. Immersed in their craft, violinist Gary Schulte, guitarist Pavel Jany and bassist
Dan Weston with their Talking Strings are true ambassadors of Global music on every level.

Pavel Jany’s diversity and eclecticism in his guitar playing and composing have no boundaries,
and his long musical journey encompasses many various styles. His classical guitar background
was enriched by influences from East European Gypsy music to the works of jazz fusion guitarists
Ralph Towner, Al Di Meola, Pat Metheny, Carlos Santana, and many Brazilian guitar masters.
His three year stay in West Africa and his travels to Brazil and other South American countries
deepened his interest in West-African and Afro-Latin music, and his passion for samba, bossa nova,
and Brazilian jazz.
Pavel Jany
is a founder of a number of International jazz projects on the Twin Cities’ music scene,
including Brazilian jazz ensemble “Ticket To Brasil”, instrumental trio “The Talking Strings”,
and his new fusion group “World Jazz Collegium”. He frequently participates in various jazz and
international music projects, and he has worked and / or recorded with nationally and recognized artists
such as Estaire Godinez, Lucia Newell, Linda Peterson, Regina Williams, Chris Lomheim, Doug Little,
Marc Anderson, and many others.

Gary Schulte is a violinist and performance composer to whom Stephane Grappelli gave his
most sincere blessing. A veteran of A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION, he has done everything
from classical improvisation with harpsichord master Layton James to the avant garde with David
Byrne, and extensive collaborative work with groups such as Ancestor Energy poetry-jazz with
Louis Alemayehu, Ballet of the Dolls, and Theatre de la Jeune Lune. Sought after as a jazz
violinist, he has gigged with some of the greatest artists of the Gypsy Jazz genre, including
guitarist legend Dorado Schmitt. He is also known for his work in the Black Gospel tradition,
and for his unaccompanied solo violin performances in which he takes a story or image and
creates a spontaneous composition in front of a live audience. Of his recent performances
with Klezmerica, Ed Huyck of CITY PAGES wrote: “Special mention goes to violinist Gary
Schulte, whose playing threatened to raise the roof right off Park Square.” A performance
graduate of Indiana University School of Music, he studied with Paganini master Rugierro
Ricci, and Josef Gingold.

Dan Weston (Bass, Drums and Percussion) has performed in a wide variety of groups and performers
in the Twin cities since 1985. With abilities on electric and acoustic bass, drum and percussion, he has
performed with national entertainers such as Della Reese, Red Skelton, Steve Allen, Jack Jones and
Rich Little.
He has also performed in local groups such as The Butanes, Mic Sterling and the Stud Brothers,
George Faber, Percy Struthers, Ticket to Brasil, Stay Tuned, Tempus, Xibaba, JoBud/Whoopgnash,
The Boxheads, The R Factor and many others. Influences include Airto, Steve Jordan, Jaco Pastorius,
Marcus Miller, Buddy Rich, Miles Davis, Joe Zawinul, John Schofield and many others.
