The program continues like that for three-quarters of an hour, each track heading off in a different direction -- each one a masterpiece that would have been a proud achievement for any musician. What made Jaco so exceptional was that he was responsible for all of them, and this was his debut album. Beyond his phenomenal bass technique and his surprisingly mature compositional chops he was 24 when this album was released , there was the breathtaking audacity of his arrangements: "Okonkole Y Trompa" is scored for electric bass, French horn, and percussion, and "Speak Like a Child," which Pastorious composed in collaboration with pianist Herbie Hancock , features a string arrangement by Pastorious that merits serious attention in its own right. For a man with this sort of kaleidoscopic creativity to remain sane was perhaps too much to ask; his gradual descent into madness and eventual tragic death are now a familiar story, one which makes the bright promise of this glorious debut album all the more bittersweet.

January 16th, 45 replies Release Date: Tracklist I love this guy, and thought I may as well give it a shot to review the CD that made him famous. Definately for the 4-string instrument they call the bass guitar. Donna Lee You will be blown away by this track. I think, at least, this is up around bpm, which is exceedingly quick for quavers. A simple bongo is accompanied to keep time, as if Jaco would need it.
The solo is excellent, one of the best on the album, still keeping with the bpm and doing it with perfection. Continuum The piece that defined how the fretless bass was played. Jaco abuses his bass in this absolute mastery.
Again, only using simple accompaniment, piano and cymbals, Jaco shows his mastery of the bass. He uses the chorus effect to full use, giving a certain aura about the song. Again, the solo is amazing, I especially liked the octave phrases. The improvised head out is outstanding it is one of my favourite things to play on my bass. Again, an insanely fast bass line by Jaco, showing that he is not only a soloist, he can make great bass lines, and keep the time as well. Portrait of Tracy Ah, my all time favourite bass solo.
There is only one word to describe this piece - unbelievable. Possibly the first song, and still the best, to be based on harmonics. The phrasing on the piece is simply outstanding - words fail me. Though it is not a very aurally pleasing song to the untrained ear i.
The intro is one you are sure not to forget. Used to be a Cha-Cha This is my favourite song on the album for reason only - possibly the most insane bass solo ever in contained in it. Another very quick song about bpm when the time reached , be sure to triple the volume on the stereo.
When the time reaches , you can probably switch it to the next track, but if you want to listen, again he shows his mastery of keeping time in quick songs with great bass lines - there is also a flute or something solo which is quite enjoyable.
He lay motionless on the concrete, as if sleeping, his tangled shoulder-length hair ringed by a halo of blood. He lay there peacefully for a while, in the darkened alley in a strip shopping mall in Wilton Manors, Florida, on the morning of September 12, When the bouncer chased the man down the alley, the man threw a glancing blow at him. The bouncer shoved him and he fell backward, hitting his head on the concrete. Bruises were everywhere. Both eyes were swollen shut. There was massive internal bleeding.

Who Killed Jaco Pastorius?
He was the oldest of three boys born to Stephanie, his Finnish mother, and Jack Pastorius, a singer and jazz drummer who spent much of his time on the road. His family moved to Oakland Park near Fort Lauderdale when he was eight. In , he began spelling it "Jaco" after it was misspelled by his neighbor, pianist Alex Darqui. His brother called him " Mowgli " after the wild boy in The Jungle Book because he was energetic and spent much of his time shirtless on the beach, climbing trees, running through the woods, and swimming in the ocean. He attended St.
