Muze PNote One of the most influential electric bassists of all time--in either jazz or rock--Jaco Pastorius virtually redefined the instrument during the 1970s and '80s. Pastorius pioneered a dynamic, agile style that emphasized melodic invention over steady, rhythmic pulses, and brought the bass line to the forefront in all his ensembles. Though his career and output were cut tragically short by his death in 1987, his influence has been immeasurable.
Muze PNote THE ESSENTIAL JACO PASTORIUS is the perfect introduction to Pastorius's style. The two-disc set also serves as an overview of the bass wizard's diverse output, covering his solo releases, his tenure with Weather Report, and his dates as a session musician (including two stunning tracks from Joni Mitchell's HEJIRA). There's an avalanche of dazzling playing on this generous, superbly selected compilation; it gives a brilliant, comprehensive testament to a legendary musician.
