Biographie Paul Zauner auf Chinesisch
Towards the end of the eighties Paul Zauner had the opportunity to play at various concerts and tours with important jazz musicans such as Leon Thomas, George Adams, David Murray, Leopoldo Fleming, Carter Jefferson, Gary Bartz and Hamiet Bluiett as well as record CD's.
At the same time a regular collaboration with Polish and Austrian musicians like Bumi Fian, Jarek Smietana and Woody Schabata took place.
At the beginning of the 90's a collaboration between Jean Paul Bourelly and John Purcell existed for a few years. The most lasting impression was left indeed by the collaboration between him and the ingenious musician Harry Pepl.
In 1992 Paul Zauner and Franz Hackl founded their first band called ITSLYF. In which Franz Hackl (musical director), Thomas Kugi, Gottfried Stöger, David Gilmore, Kenny Davis, Rodney Holmes and Pavan Kumar and others played from 92-97.
Tours to Asia, Africa, North and South America and great European festivals brought them great success with Avantgarde-Fusion-Jazz.
The CD "Hep Caolin" (PAO/VERVE) was admitted to the "Guide of Jazz and Blues" as one of the best CD's of the century and appraised with 5 stars.
Actually Paul Zauner is mostly working with his “Quartet” including Clemens Salesny, Wolfram Derschmidt and Dusan Novakov as well as the Blue Brass. A very special set up is the Barock/Contemporary music Crossover project “ARS Futura”.
He is also member of the Oliver Lake Quintet “Dedicated to Eric Dolphy”
