Quotes & Highlights

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

Description

Personnel:

  • 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.
