Zenit is a jazz ensemble from Krems in Lower Austria, founded in 1976 by Hannes Treiber and Willi Langer. Their music was celebrated locally, but to reduce them to their local fame would be a shame: After all, their first two LPs, ‘Stimmungswechsel’ and ‘Früchte’, quickly gained them a much wider audience of discerning listeners. Arguably, however, Zenit’s third and final LP ‘Straight Ahead’ is the most special of their records. It initially came out in 1986 on the producer’s label Spray Records, and is today one of the hardest-to-find Austrian jazz records.
