    Joe Zawinul (July 7, 1932 – September 11, 2007) was an Austrian jazz keyboardist and composer. First coming to prominence with saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, Zawinul went on to play with Miles Davis, and to become one of the creators of jazz fusion, an innovative musical genre that combined jazz with elements of rock and world music. Later, Zawinul co-founded the groups Weather Report and the world fusion music-oriented Zawinul Syndicate. Additionally, he made pioneering use of electric piano and synthesizers. Zawinul was named Best Electric Keyboardist 28 times by the readers of Down Beat magazine.
    A number of prominent musical artists have honored Zawinul with compositions, including Brian Eno's instrumental Zawinul/Lava, John McLaughlin's instrumental Jozy [...]. Zawinul's playing style was often dominated by quirky melodic improvisations – traversing bebop, ethnic and pop styles – combined with sparse but rhythmic playing of big-band sounding chords or bass lines. In Weather Report, he often employed a vocoder as well as pre-recorded sounds played (i.e. filtered and transposed) through a synthesizer, a method or technique called sampling, creating a very distinctive synthesis of jazz harmonies and noise [...] Classically trained at the Konservatorium Wien, Zawinul played in various broadcasting and studio bands before emigrating to the U.S. in 1959 on a music scholarship at Berklee School of Music in Boston. [...] In 1961, Zawinul joined the Quintet led by saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. [...] In the late 1960s, Zawinul recorded with Miles Davis's studio band and helped create the sound of jazz fusion. He played on the album In a Silent Way, the title track, which he composed, and the landmark album Bitches Brew, for which he contributed the twenty-minute track, Pharaoh's Dance, which occupied the whole of side one. [...]
    Zawinul, along with other Davis sidemen Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, was one of the first to use electric pianos and early synthesizers like the ARP 2600 in 1973's Sweetnighter. He was also among the first to use an electric piano, the Wurlitzer. He used the Fender-Rhodes thereafter, adding a wah-wah pedal and later the Mutron effect unit for a complex phased timbre. [...]
    In 1970, Zawinul co-founded Weather Report with saxophonist and Davis alumnus Wayne Shorter (and later joined by Jaco Pastorius). [...] With their 4th album, Mysterious Traveller, the musical forms were now through-composed similar to classical music, and the combination of jazz harmonies with 1970s groove elements helped launch the band into its most commercially successful period. The band's biggest commercial success came from his composition Birdland, a 6-minute opus featured on Weather Report's 1977 album Heavy Weather, which peaked at number 30 on the Billboard pop albums chart. Birdland is one of the most recognizable jazz pieces of the 1970s, covered by many prominent artists from The Manhattan Transfer and Quincy Jones to Maynard Ferguson, the Buddy Rich Big Band, and Jefferson Starship. [...] The song won him three Grammys. Weather Report was active until the mid-1980s, with Zawinul and Shorter remaining the sole constant members through multiple personnel shifts. The group was notable for helping bring to prominence not only pioneering fretless electric bassist Jaco Pastorius, but also other musicians, such as Alphonso Johnson and Peter Erskine. Shorter and Zawinul had already gone separate ways, after the recording of their final Sportin' Life, when it was discovered that they had to do one more album in order to fulfill their contract with CBS records. This Is This! therefore became the band's final album. Shorter participated despite being busy leading his own group, and Peter Erskine was also brought in again for this record, and played on most of the compositions. Victor Bailey played electric bass and guitarist Carlos Santana appeared as a guest artist on the album. [...] Zawinul became ill and was hospitalized in his native Vienna in August 2007, after concluding a five-week European tour. He died a little over a month later from a rare form of skin cancer (Merkel cell carcinoma) one month later.

  • Joe Zawinul in rehearsal 1985 - Raw Footage

    1:28:46

    Joe Zawinul-recorded summer 1985; raw tape-no edits. In the summer of 1985, I was working at a television network as a photographer/editor. For one segment of a multi-part series on jazz music, I was fortunate to spend a day with Joe Zawinul, shooting his rehearsal and interviewing him about his long career. I saved some of the tape and decided to post it for his fan's enjoyment. Unfortunately, the tape of his main interview is lost. But what remains is interesting. Joe Zawinul was and remains a master musician. He was also a very nice guy. After the shoot was finished, his wife served us all some gumbo and Joe brought out a bottle of Slivovitz, which we finished. After that, the real stories began! What a great day that was!

    John Francis Anthony Jaco Pastorius III was an American jazz bassist who was a member of Weather Report from 1976 to 1981. He worked with Pat Metheny, Joni Mitchell, and recorded albums as a solo artist and band leader. His bass playing employed funk, lyrical solos, bass chords, and innovative harmonics.

  • Joe Zawinul - In A Silent Way

    4:50

    From the album Zawinul (Atlantic / 1971)


    Conceptually, sonically, this is really the first Weather Report album in all but name, confirming that Joe Zawinul was the primary creative engine behind the group from the beginning. It is also the link between WR and Miles Davis' keyboard-laden experiments on In a Silent Way; indeed, the tune In a Silent Way is redone in the more complex form in which Zawinul envisioned it, and Miles even contributes a brief, generous tribute to Zawinul on the liner. Two keyboardists -- Zawinul and the formidable Herbie Hancock -- form the underpinning of this stately, probing album, garnishing their work with the galactic sound effects of the Echoplex and ring modulator. Earl Turbinton provides the Wayne Shorter-like beams of light on the soprano sax, spelled by Wayne himself on Double Image. The third founder of WR, Miroslav Vitous, checks in on bass, and hard-bopping trumpeter Woody Shaw proves to be perfectly adept at the jazz-rock game. Two short-lived standards of the jazz-rock era, the aforementioned Double Image and Doctor Honoris Causa, are introduced here, yet it is mood pieces like His Last Journey and Arrival in New York that with the help of tape-speed manipulation, establish the lasting, murky, reflective ambience of this CD

    Jazz - Mercy Mercy Mercy by Joe Zawinul in 1966

    An instrumental arrangement based on a recorded midi sequence by George Tassara. fgertrude@aol.com Mod. Alisdair MacRae Birch akmbirch@aol.com

    Notes: Mercy, Mercy, Mercy is a song written by Joe Zawinul in 1966 for Julian Cannonball Adderley and his album Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! Live at 'The Club'. The song is the title track of the album and became a surprise hit, reaching #11 on the Billboard charts in Feb. 1967. The song has been re-recorded numerous times, most notably by The Buckinghams who reached # 5 in August 1967, adding lyrics to the tune. It was also recorded by the Mauds in 1967, with lyrics by Curtis Mayfield. It has now become a jazz standard performed by both beginner and advanced jazz musicians.
    The theme of the song on the original recording is performed by Joe Zawinul himself playing it on a Wurlitzer electric piano previously used by Ray Charles.
