Joe Zawinul Trio - To You With Love

Music journalism defines him a "Legend". It may be a word overused but there isn't truly a more appropriate way to describe keyboardist/composer Joe Zawinul. Austrian born, Joe Zawinul emigrated to the US in 1959 where he played with Maynard Ferguson and the great Dinah Washington before joining alto saxophonist great Cannonball Adderley in 1961 for nine years. Zawinul then moved on to a brief but fateful encounter and collaboration with Miles Davis, just at the time Miles was moving into the electric arena. In 1970, Zawinul and saxophonist Wayne Shorter put together what was to become the most important jazz group of the ‘70s and beyond, Weather Report. Bandmembers came and went, including Miroslav Vitous, Alphonso Johnson, Jaco Pastorius, Victor Bailey, Peter Erskine and Omar Hakim.
... A few months after his arrival in NYC in 1959, Zawinul got the chance to record the present album, the first time since arriving in United States as a leader of his own trio.

Mel, thanx for so rare recordings, As a Zawinul follower, this is really a X'mas gift in april. Thank you so much. Just one remark about the introductory text: maybe it was written before Mr Zawinul passing away in 2007, at the age of 75 years. Anyway, I really appreciate this post, and recommend this album to Zawinul followers (this is an opportunity to know his earliest works, pre-Fusion era).

Melanchthon said...

You're right, ZM-JazzRock, I will correct it. Thank you.

Didn't catch this the first time around, so I'm glad to see it back. Like some others here, I prefer Zawinul's pre-fusion work.
