Jaco may have auditioned with a fretted bass, but Jaco was documented using fretless in Flirida long before he had the connections to audition for high profile gigs.
That said, Ralphe Armstrong is a trailblazer and he deserves recognition as a trailblazer on fretless, and as a brilliant soloist.
Freebo was playing a fretless P-bass with Bonnie Raitt before 1973 and Rick Danko also played fretless with The Band before 1973. Not to take anything away from Armstrong, I love his playing.
