Joe Zawinul & the Zawinul Syndicate
September 19, 2005
Recorded on several dates in 2004, the double-disc Vienna Nights captures two versions of the keyboard maestro’s live band, performing material from his long and illustrious career—including a few vintage Weather Report tunes. The Zawinul Syndicate has always showcased extraordinary guitarists, and this recording features stunning performances by Indian virtuoso Amit Chatterjee and Brazilian iconoclast Alegre Corrêa, along with blazing contributions from Syndicate alumnus Scott Henderson, who guests on three tracks. Don’t miss this wonderful global-jazz-fusion extravaganza. BHM.
