Jazz legend Joe Zawinul dies at 75
VIENNA (AP) — Jazz legend Joe Zawinul, who soared to fame as one of the creators of jazz fusion and performed and recorded with Miles Davis, has died, a hospital official said. He was 75.
The keyboardist died early Tuesday, a spokeswoman for Vienna's Wilhelmina Clinic said, without giving details. Zawinul had been hospitalized since last month.
Zawinul, who turned 75 on July 7, won widespread acclaim for his keyboard work on chart-topping Davis albums such as In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew, and was a leading force behind the so-called "Electric Jazz" movement.
In 1970, Zawinul founded the band Weather Report and produced a series of albums including Heavy Weather,Black Market and I Sing the Body Electric. After that band's breakup, he founded the Zawinul Syndicate in 1987.
Zawinul is credited with bringing the electric piano and synthesizer into the jazz mainstream.
