An exciting new release of a legendary performance from Austrian-born jazz musician Joe Zawinul, co-founder of Weather Report and arguably the best fusion player of his or any other generation.

Zawinul, who recently received the award of “Best Jazz/Blues/Folk album of the year” from Maceo Parker at the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards in Vienna for Faces & Places, is one of the most innovative synthesiser players alive today. It is no secret that few things age as quickly as yesterday’s electric and electronic sounds, yet this 1989 recording of Zawinul playing the Piano Summer in the Munich Philharmonic Hall with his Syndicate still seems contemporary.

Zawinul has always married sounds and influences from all around the world, especially African and Latin American, his trademark sound. It could only be that the mixture today is even more varied. What Zawinul did in the 90s, for example on his album “My People” with electronic means and with musicians from Anatolia, Cuba, Ivory Coast, Guinea, India, Israel, Italy, Cameroon, Mali, Peru, Poland, Siberia, Turkey, USA, Venezuela and his homeland Austria is nothing less than an attempt of a personal synthesis of the entire earth.
