Joe Zawinul

1932 - 2007

Origin: Austria

Main instrument: Piano

Genres: Fusion, World

It's hard to determine whether keyboardist and composer Joe Zawinul had a greater impact as a musician or as a songwriter. In both capacities, he was a driving force in two important movements: jazz-rock fusion at the dawn of the 1970s and world music in the mid-1980s. His dexterity on the synthesizer and experiments with electronic instruments (most notably as part of the Weather Report) resonated beyond the jazz realm, inspiring musicians as diverse as Brian Eno and John McLaughlin to dedicate songs to the influential artist.
