R.I.P. Joe Zawinul

Legendary jazz keyboardist and composer Joe Zawinul died this morning in Vienna after a battle with cancer. Zawinul was a member of Miles Davis' groundbreaking fusion ensemble, then he and Wayne Shorter left and formed the equally groundbreaking band Weather Report.

I don't know about you, but I will be listening to "Bitches Brew" and "Heavy Weather" this morning to mourn his passing.
