This 100 minute DVD captures one of the final concerts by the legendary jazz keyboardist and composer Joe Zawinul & his Zawinul Syndicate, filmed shortly before his death in September 2007. A bonus track features a duet with saxophonist Wayne Shorter performing the classic Zawinul composition "In A Silent Way".
Keyboardist/composer Joe Zawinul was one of the all-time jazz greats. Shortly after wrapping up his summer tour with his band "The Zawinul Syndicate", he died on September 11, 2007. On July 7, 2007, at the Lugano Jazz Festival, Zawinul and his band played at his 75th birthday, cutting what was to be the last multi-track recordings. Each and every track makes you feel the devotion and soul, the melodic and harmonic ideas, the inner drive and a boundless lust for life of this man.
On August 2, 2007, the last but one concert ever played by Zawinul saw the reunion of two long-time musical companions: Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter, the stars of Weather Report. The 14-minute duet "In a Silent Way" contained here is pure magic created by two artists in full harmony.
Personnel: Joe Zawinul (keyboards, vocoder), Sabine Kabongo (vocals, percussion), Alegre Correa (guitar, vocals, berimbau), Linley Marthe (bass), Paco Sery (drums, kalimba, vocals), Jorge Bezerra (percussion, vocals), Aziz Sahmaoui (perussion, vocals) Special guest: Wayne Shorter (saxophone, track 9)

Back to the performance. As always, Joe surrounds himself with the best musicians in the world. The grooves they achieve will not allow you to sit while listening, or keep from laughing out loud with delight - at least if you appreciate talent and feeling like I do. Joe, as usual, uses his subtle cues to conduct and mold the music. While there are times he seems distant (as you would expect from a man who knows his end is near), Joe locks into the groove and takes absolute delight in the directions the music takes. His delight is obvious and infectious. His team of musicians looks at him like a father that they are eager to please, and please him they do. If you are a Zawinul fan, a jazz fan in general, a lover of funk, or a lover of music in general - BUY THIS DVD.
The problem for some folks will be that the DVD will not play in all DVD players. The disc is formatted for Europe - region 2. This means that the North American video standard, NTSC, was not used.
As mentioned in the previous review; you may own a player that reads all regions, however most players are not all region enabled.
The second option for playback is to use second party software to convert from PAL, region 2 standard to NTSC and burn a new DVD.
That is the option I used. The minor drawback with this method is that the Disc Menu will not function.
This recording does merit whatever means are necessary to acquire and view/listen.
