Wikipedia : This day (September 11, 2007), in Vienna, Austria, died Joe Zawinul, an Austrian-American jazz keyboardist and composer.
Joe Zawinul : He composed some of the best-known standards in jazz, including “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” and “Birdland.” With Wayne Shorter, Joe founded and led Weather Report, arguably the most successful band of post-sixties jazz.
Joe Zawinul online : Though he left us in body, he remains with us in spirit. He touched the lives of countless individuals around the world, and his recording legacy of music will enrich us forever.
@ last.fm : Zawinul’s biggest commercial success came from his composition Birdland, a 6-minute opus featured on Weather Report’s 1977 album Heavy Weather. “Birdland” is one of the most recognizable jazz pieces of the ’70s, covered by many prominent artists from The Manhattan Transfer to Maynard Ferguson.
