Review

This live 2-CD set is the fruit of a 1997 Zawinul Syndicate world tour. Powered by Abidjanian drummer Paco Sery and either long-time Zawinul associate Victor Baily or Richard Bona on bass, the group attains critical mass from the start, cooling down only when a change of pace is warranted. -- Jazz Times

Zawinul and the Syndicate turn in muscular performances from 1997. Covers much of the Syndicate catalogue as well as cuts from "My People" and "Stories of the Danube". OG style Fusion, World Beat and BeBop; World Tour has it all, and it smokes! Weather Report for the 90s! I have seen them several times and this CD really captures what the shows are like: high energy, furious improv exchange, thundering grooves that can modulate to sensitive introspective explorations and then turn back again on a dime, played by the some of the best musicians in the world. Features Drummer Paco Sery, Percusionist Manolo Badrena, Guitarist Gary Poulson, Bassists Victor Bailey and Richard Bono (Manolo Badrena played on "Heavy Weather" and Victor Bailey replaced Jaco). Shame no earlier work with Gerald Veasley or Matthew Garrison included. If you enjoy the Zawinul Syndicate studio releases or Weather Report, then this CD is a must buy.

I saw them on this tour in summer '97 and it was a mostly cookin' / slammin' show . There were some technical difficulties that Joe was having with his keyboards from the humidity.. ( was an outdoor show in the dead of the Pittsburgh summer here ) . He was grumbling and cursing his gear out at times .. hehehe.. it was amusing ... But... yea.. as other people on here have noted ... Paco, the drummer is a good player ... knows when to play and when not to and has that uniquely African sense of accentuation that I haven't heard since Manu Katche` ( drummer with peter gabriel , sting , robbie robertson and others ) ... Manolo Badrena is really the other good half of Paco though, playing off him with wonderful bemusement , .... Manolo is perhaps the best hand percussionist i've ever heard... and seen ... he sang a few tracks when I saw them as well ... If there's any complaint I have about this release is that it's perhaps too much of the African aesthetic and not enough jazz fusion as Joe is better known for ... I think he got a little too obsessed with being Mister-World Music . I feel he also relies on the vocoder ( a device that makes his voice sound harmonic and strange ) too much ... He's better suited in the post-Miles Davis/ post Weather Report thing in my opinion ... He oughta leave the African entendres to others I think ... As well... a few of the tracks that are comprised of just Joe playing his keys are a lot too elevator-music -cum sing - songy mamby pamby---.... " Sunday Morning/Sunday Evening " being one of them ... The track ' Success ' with the spoken word poetry comes off a little out of place as well , a little too spooky for the collective vibe of the rest of the cds .Read more ›

THIS 2CD PACKAGE CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF A BAND PLAYING THEIR SOCKS OFF IN A LIVE SETTING REMINISCENT OF WEATHER REPORT IN THEIR HAYDAY..PACO SERRY IS THE 'WARHEAD' IN THIS LINEUP, BUT THE ENTIRE BAND GEL SUBLIMELY, WITH FUNK GROOVES AND WORLD MUSIC, FIRE & WATER, LIGHT & SHADE.. THE IMPROVISATIONAL PASSAGES ARE RICH WITH EXERPTS FROM PREVIOUS ZAWINUL ANECTODES. A MUST FOR ANY LISTENER WHO ENJOYED WEATHER REPORT.
