Zawinul Touring Update

Continuing Zawinul’s recent collaborative efforts, he will perform two concerts with Kristjan Järvi’s New York-based, Grammy-nominated Absolute Ensemble on September 17 and 18. Joining them will be long-time Syndicate member Sabine Kabongo. The performances promise to include some Zawinul compositions that have yet to be heard, as well as reworkings of some well-known tunes.

Also on the schedule is a rare Zawinul Syndicate performance in South Korea, sandwiched by performances in Austria, and a recently added date in Northampton, Massachusetts. See the Tour Dates page for details.

Joe Zawinul On The Creative Process Published

Joe Zawinul On The Creative Process
Rittor Music has published a new book in Japanese, Joe Zawinul On The Creative Process. I don’t read Japanese, but the Google translation of Rittor’s web page makes it sound pretty interesting, despite Google’s Japanese-to-English limitations. Zawinul tells me that an English translation of the book has already been completed, and a publisher for it is being sought in the states or in the UK.
