For more than ten years Joe Zawinul has been trying to elevate jazz on a global level with the Zawinul Syndicate. The festival in its long history of supporting (radio) big band culture in Germany encourages yet again the Cologne radio station’s WDR Big Band to return to Berlin. The band’s Zawinul project has already been tried and tested once and will now be broadened with new compositions and some newly invited musical guests of honour. Zawinul’s Birdland club in Vienna is the perfect “warm-up”-venue before their Berlin performance to get the band into ‘working temperature’.
