Joe Zawinul release his album ‘Faces and Places’ in 2002 – I just had a spell on community radio at the time and managed to have a phone interview with Joe Zawinul and when through his album ‘Faces & Places’ - talking about the inspiration of each track - taking us through the album.

At the end of his world tour – The North sea Jazz festival – then 2 nights at the Hammersmith Apollo – Followed by 6 nights at The Famous Jazz Club Ronnie Scott’s Oct 14-19 – on the Last night Sat 19th 2002 Joe used that night to celebrate one of his 70th birthday nights and the Zawinul Syndicate was razor-sharp and trigger fast – and I had a front table seat.
