About

It doesn't take long to introduce the stellar career of Joe Zawinul. He spent his childhood in Vienna where he learnt to play piano and experimented with jazz, the forbidden music banned during WW2, under cover of night. In 1958, he moved to the USA as a young man and quickly found his feet in the predominantly black jazz world, playing with the likes of Dinah Washington, Cannonball Adderley and Miles Davis, for whom he wrote the timeless standard "In A Silent Way" and music from Bitches Brew.
