Joe Zawinul & The Zawinul Syndicate: 75

Read "75" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins

It's not about stretching out, although Zawinul's latest edition of the Zawinul Syndicate does take the opportunity to expand on the five tunes from Faces and Places ...

Joe Zawinul & The Zawinul Syndicate: Vienna Nights: Live at Joe Zawinul's Birdland

Read "Vienna Nights: Live at Joe Zawinul's Birdland" reviewed by Jim Santella

Recorded at Birdland in Vienna, Austria last May and September for his own label, Joe Zawinul's powerhouse unit gives this live audience quite a thrill.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
