Joe Zawinul - one of the most legendary, visionary and influential musicians and bandleaders that jazz ever produced. His passing in the fall of Protected content a big, gaping hole in the musical world that can never be filled. But if anybody could, it would be The Syndicate- the band that he chose as the vehicle for his innovative and genrebusting musical styles after the break-up of Weather Report in the mid 80ties.
Joe Zawinul had a true midas touch in picking his bandmembers, not only picked because of their virtuoso instrumental skills, but with a special ear for how, ultimately, each musician would contribute to a whole that was totally unique to Joe Zawinuls vision. The Syndicate has decided to keep the band together, and continue and expand on the vision that Joe Zawinul laid out.
