In his short 36 years, Jaco Pastorius revolutionized the role of the bass in jazz, turning the fretless electric bass into a fluid guitar-like lead instrument. He was one of the creative forces that shaped the style and success of Weather Report, the best jazz fusion band of all time, and from the moment he burst on the jazz scene he was consistently at the top of all the annual Downbeat polls with both critics and readers. Jaco's brilliance was legendary among musicians such as Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Joni Mitchell, with whom he recorded extensively.
This concert performance from the 1982 Montreal Jazz Festival captures Jaco in his prime -- as both the outrageous stage presence and the brilliant musical force with unfathomable technique that never sacrificed musicality and groove. Jaco leads the band in a scorching set filled with both great ensemble work and exceptional solos where everyone has ample opportunity to stretch out.
Includes live performances of Chicken, Donna Lee, Jaco's Bass Solo, Mr. Fonebone, and Fannie Mae!
