    It's also on the Jaco Pastorius Anthology (Punk Jazz).....extraordinary album...my personal favorite.

    great song wayne shorter assembled a supergroup there...
  6. That was my first Jaco purchase. I'm glad I bought it first, but now that I've had a LOT more exposure to Jaco, that album is kinda weak IMO. They only have 1 song from his self-titled album, and yet they have all but 1 song from Word of Mouth:meh: I'll never understand that. Still, good album when I'm in a mixed mood. I like that they threw in some of his guest spots too, like the song with Mike Stern (Mood Swings), Trilogue, Brian Melvin, Joni, etc. It's a good mix. But that WOM to Self-Titled ratio is WAAAYYY off. Plus there's only 1 Weather Report song.

    But then again, making a "Best Of" Jaco CD is bound to be tough. If they made it the way I think it should be made, it would be like 20 CDs.
