Two Years With the Zawinul Syndicate Nearing Re-release

Back in the year 2000, Tony Zawinul, Joe’s eldest son, released a video documentary about the Zawinul Syndicate. It was a cool behind-the-scenes look at the band and its travels in the late 1990s. This is the band of the World Tour CD, with Gary Paulson, Paco Sery, Manolo Badrena, Victor Bailey and Richard Bona.

Two Years was released on VHS tape, but disappeared pretty quickly, never making it onto DVD. I still get occasional requests asking how to get a copy, and it now appears that Tony is preparing to release it in digital form, as he announced on the Zawinul Legacy Band Facebook page. He’s taking pre-orders starting on Christmas Day. Go to the Heavy Weather Shop and sign up for email updates.

Tony is also crowd-funding a documentary about Weather Report. You can go to my Weather Report site for more details.
