Genius....Giant....INNOVATOR.

so precious few can be called any of the above.
even more rare, is to be ALL of these.

like a comet that roared across the jazz and world music landscape for all to see, 
this musical dynamo continued to thrill and lift up with his seemingly limitless energy.

from In A Silent Way to?his final notes, Joe Z's music enthralled me.? his live performances NEVER disappointed.? this supercharged human being seemed to have only one speed: burning!
[even his beautiful ballads were burning].

so many great memories, {@ Central Park's Schaeffer Music Festival with Miles for $2 for starters};
the Jaco days; the Syndicate; in the studio...listening to his recordings--practically to excess!} 

releasing Joe's Grammy nominated World Tour set on Zebra was among my fondest and proudest
experiences.? let Joe Z's music inspire us forever and let his life stand as a shining example
of one man who grabbed this life by the horns and lived it with such zest and enthusiasm, without compromise and so richly; and leaves this earth a far more beautiful and enriched place.

one of Joe's pleasures was sipping Slivovitz {an Austriuan plum wine}? if you're able, get a small bottle and hole up with a stack of Joe's music and revel in a life lived to the fullest, to a true global citizen.

One World/One Love
Thank You JOE!
