I talked about Jaco Pastroius with the Word Of Mouth Big Band in the latest issue of First Bass And Beyond.? This is a clip from the ‘Toob of that big band playing at a jazz festival in Japan in 1982.
The track is called The Chicken – it’s a great example of Jaco’s approach to fingerstyle funk….there’s some great playing in this track that is gloriously uncluttered by guitars and keyboards being in the way!

Jaco’s bass lines belong probably to the best of class. His grooves are amazing and have a lot of soul background. Great if you could spend a lesson or 2 on him!
He’s smoothest funk bassplayer i’ve ever heard
