For many musicians in Austria Joe Zawinul’s music is a focus point and source of inspiration. In an unusual line up with violin/saxophone as it’s lead section „Travel Image“ process and remix lesser known but none the less interesting pieces from Zawinul’s early years.

Newcomer Peter Primus Frosch and violinist Paul Dangl, who has gained renown with world-jazz-ensemble Nim Sofyan, encounter Clemens Salesny and Peter Rom – both founder members of the JazzWerkstatt Vienna – and the exceptional bass player Raphael Preuschl. The resulting dynamism proves that the „old“ compositions have lost none of their freshness and actuality.

line up:
Clemens Salesny (saxophone)
Paul Dangl (violin)
Peter F. Rom (guitar)
Peter P. Frosch (drums)
Raphael Preuschl (bass)
