Re: Jaco Pastorius - 30th Death Anniversary

I heard a guy play 'Portrait Of Tracy' the other day on bass, I love that song, I wish I had the time to dig deeper into his music but I just haven't been able to lately.

Re: Jaco Pastorius - 30th Death Anniversary

Jaco was probably the most important bass player of the last 60 years. He left an influence on players as big as Hendrix did for guitarists.

He was an Fing nut job though.

He joined Weather Report by going to one of their shows and approaching Joe Zawinul after the show and proclaiming "I'm Jaco Pastorius and I'm the best bass player in the world. I should be in your band". He got the gig.

He was beaten to death outside of a Florida nightclub. I don't believe anyone was ever charged with his murder.

Re "nut job": JP was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The diagnosis plus the fact that his parents split up early, etc... I just love Jaco and his music too much to simply accept him being called a nut job. The guy loved and embraced life, I talked to a couple people who knew/worked with him. He was a sweet guy but not everyone got/understood him.

I totally get that. I didn't know that part of the story and assumed something much different. I apologize for my ignorant quip.
