Music journalism defines him as 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. At age 75, in 2005, the year his life was taken by cancer, Joe Zawinul was still leading the way and had something fresh to say.

A few months after his arrival in New York City 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.
