Zawinul Article in Sound on Sound Magazine

The June issue of the UK magazine Sound on Sound has a fine article about Zawinul by Paul Tingen, author of the excellent book Miles Beyond. It is a noteworthy article in that it goes into considerable detail regarding Zawinul’s studio equipment and recording techniques—something you would expect from “Europe’s No. 1 Hi—Tech Recording Magazine.”

Faces And Places Wins Austrian Amadeus Award

Joe Zawinul’s most recent album, Faces and Places, won an Austrian Amadeus award (roughly the Austrian equivalent of a Grammy) in the Jazz/Blues/Folk album category. Nominees are the top five best-selling albums in each category. Winners are based on a vote of 400 members of the Austrian music industry. Congrats, Joe! (Thanks to Gerhard Hauer for the heads up on the award.)
