The New Joe Zawinul Official Website

The new Joe Zawinul official website went online today. You can check it out here.

There is a section about the Zawinul Legacy Band, which includes Scott Kinsey, Matt Garrison, Bobby Malach, Robert Thomas, Jr., and Mike Baker. All of them, except for Kinsey, played with Joe either in Weather Report or the Zawinul Syndicate, or on record. And in Scott’s case, he was an important behind-the-scenes contributor to Joe’s album Faces and Places. (The broken words at the beginning of the song “The Spirit of Julian ‘C’ Adderley” was put together by Scott from the speech by the Reverend Jesse Jackson that appears at the beginning of the Adderley album Country Preacher.)

According to the website, the Legacy Band will perform in Europe this fall. No dates have been announced as of yet. The band is also booked next year as part of Carnegie Hall’s city-wide Vienna: City of Dreams festival.
