Audio Clarity 45rpm For A Better Experience!

Pioneering keyboardist Joe Zawinul will always be remembered for spearheading the fusion project Weather Report and for his input on important Miles Davis LPs. After classical training in Vienna during his youth, Zawinul began working with leading Austrian jazz musicians in the early 1950s, including the pianist and composer Friedrich Gulda, and after moving to the US in 1959 he joined Maynard Ferguson's big band, accompanied Dinah Washington and Sweets Edison, and rose to prominence in Cannonball Adderley's band. Although his debut solo album, Money In the Pocket, was mostly in hard bop mode, the 1968 release The Rise & Fall of the Third Stream saw Zawinul exercise his grounding in classical music, making the most of Mississippi-born William S. Fisher's stirring compositions and orchestral arrangements, which form a striking contrast to Zawinul's lively acoustic and electric piano lines, perhaps heard most strongly on "Soul of a Village, Part II". The Third Stream sub-genre sought to balance jazz and classical elements and on his acoustic interpretation of Gulda's "From Vienna, With Love", Zawinul demonstrates most clearly his groundbreaking work within the genre.
