Welcome to Austria. Today we will spend a little time with the incomparable Josef Zawinul, known in his later years as simply ‘Zawinul’. He came to prominence as a sideman with groups such as the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, then as a founding member of the seminal fusion group Weather Report, and later on his own with the Zawinul Syndicate.

We’re going to see these three and more progressions in Zawinul’s life:

 

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy

 

Birdland

 

Carnivalito

 

With John McLaughlin – Live in Austria at the Danaufestival Wellenlängen in Niederösterriech – “In a Silent Way”

 

With WDR Big Band – 70th Birthday Celebration – Faces and Places Concert – “Db Waltz”
