Jaco Pastorius (1951-1987) - 20 years later...


(Jaco Pastorius performs with the group Weather Report at the 1981 Playboy Jazz Festival in Los Angeles)
What to say about Jaco... A genius on the bass, someone that I admire, that took the electric bass to a different level, not afraid of transceding the 4-string bass limitations. A master of the fretless bass and all the harmonics one can get from that instrument.
+ Check it out this great NPR report with a short biography and a few of his greatest tracks

Jaco will always be sorely missed! What an inspiration, but what a terrible way to die.
