    I recently found an old podcast featuring Mark Egan which lead me to Dave Holland which got me interested in Pat Methany which lead me back to Jaco.

    Its been over a year since I listened/watched Jaco and I forgot how much I love that cat. Watching his later videos with him playing on fretted basses and still souning so lyrical just drove home the point that his tone came from him and not so much the gear.

    RIP Jaco

    Amen to that...always good to be refreshed after a period of being away. Opens the EARS...
  3. Jaco was, and always will be, the Man!

    how many of today's modern bass players owe their start to hearing his jaw-dropping songs.

    if there is a pantheon of bass players, with people like john entwistle and others featured prominently, i know that Jaco sits at the head of the table.
