Jaco Pastorius: Portrait of Jaco
Steven Rosen, Player (Japan), June 1978
JACO PASTORIUS, at 26, has developed bass playing capabilities putting him at the top of the technical ladder. He combines an R&B feel with strict jazz lines to produce a style like none other. Using a distinctive muted sound and employing harmonics in a nouveau fashion, he is in constant demand as a session player.
