Quotes & Highlights

“A hot contender for best world-jazz ensemble on the planet.” —The Guardian (UK)



  • Joe Zawinul, keyboards and vocals
  • Linley Marthe, bass
  • Jorge Bezerra Junior, percussion
  • Nathaniel Townsley, drums
  • Clovis Nunes Correa, guitar
  • Aziz Samaoui, vocals and percussion

Writing “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” performing on Miles Davis’ In a Silent Way album and starting Weather Report with Wayne Shorter have already secured keyboardist-composer Joe Zawinul’s place in music history. But the visionary Austrian, who once compared jazz to boxing (“the footwork, the jab, the constant setting up and reacting to your opponent), continues the good fight of plumbing the intersection of jazz, rock, and world music with his always-fresh Zawinul Syndicate.

About the Ticket Supplier: SFJAZZ

SFJAZZ presents a wealth of year-round programs, including the internationally acclaimed San Francisco Jazz Festival, the SFJAZZ Spring Season and numerous community outreach and education programs.

Founded in 1983 under the name of Jazz in the City, the organization adopted its new identity as SFJAZZ in late 1999, in recognition of its expansion from seasonal music presenter to year-round arts institution.

All SFJAZZ programs reflect a spirit of artistic exploration, embracing the full breadth of jazz and its related musics; emphasize thematic programming, with tributes to jazz masters and celebrations of particular musical instruments, trends or styles; and strive to instill enthusiasm for jazz among wider audiences.
