They are not disclosing much:

Has anyone heard anything more current?

Some of the most jaw-dropping shows I've ever witnessed were The Zawinul Syndicate at a tiny jazz room in Santa Cruz which seats maybe 250 people on the outside. But then, ask the average person on the street who Joe Zawinul is. Get well soon, Joe; I want to hear you play at least 10 more times.

I saw the Zawinul Syndicate play a great show in the Jazz Tent at NO Jazz Fest a few years back. I hope that Joe's condition is not serious, I think he has plenty of music left in him.

Many people don't know that some of the greatest "fusion-era" Miles Davis tracks are actually Zawinul compositions. "Pharoah's Dance" from Bitches Brew is one that comes to mind.

Well, this isn't good, I have a few Syndicate recordings and boy, they are great.

Anyone on this thread who does not have a copy of Zawinul Syndictae Live at Lincoln Center from this July, drop me a PM with your mailing address and I'll send it out to you.

Hope this is nothing serious - sounds like Zawinul is asking for limited info release to protect his privacy. I've seen him with Weather Report many moons ago - amazing player (amazing band ) Dutch - if you are serious on that offer I'd like to take you up on it PM on the way.
