Yesterday was the day 26 years ago that Jaco died. I've been listening to recordings of him in remembrance starting w/an LP of Word of Mouth ('81), and CD's in this order; JACO ('74) w/Pat Metheny, Bruce Ditmas and Paul Bley, Hejira ('76) Joni Mitchell, JACO PASTORIUS ('76) debut, Weather Report; The Jaco Years ('98) and The Birthday Concert ('95 - when released)
I have pretty much all the others, but these are my choices to keep the flame alive on this landmark. I included the Birthday Concert to end on a high note - that must have been a special night for him. Long live Jaco Pastorius.
