Der norwegische Bassist Per Mathisen hat zusammen mit Gerald Preinfalk dieses Ensemble hochkarätiger internationaler Musiker zusammengestellt, um den größten österreichischen Jazzmusiker Joe Zawinul zu huldigen. Sein Todestag jährt sich heuer zum 10. mal. Nichts liegt also näher, als seine unvergessliche Musik aus den

"Weather-Report" - Jahren wieder hoch leben zu lassen.

Die Kompositionen von "Black Market" bis hin zu "Merci, Merci" , Stücke von Jaco Pastorius werden ganz im Geiste dieser Zeit gefeiert. Gespickt wird diese Melange mit Kompositionen vom "Bass Viking" Per Mathisen, ebenfalls ganz im Stile seines Vorbildes Jaco.

Norwegian bassist extraordinaire, Per Mathisen, has brought together this wonderful international ensemble of fantastic musicians, to celebrate Joe Zawinul.

The band will perform some of Zawinul’s compositions, written for the most successful jazz band ever in the history of music, “Weather Report”, tunes composed by 2 of the most important members of the band, Jaco Pastorius and Wayne Shorter and in addition, some originals written in honour and in paying tribute to those giants, by the hand of Per Mathisen.

The concert is in the true spirit of Zawinul with amazingly virtuosic musicians making a firework of musical energy, dynamics and joy, celebrating his grand legacy to the world of music.
