Just thought i'd dedicate a thread to jaco, because it is the 13 annual jaco rememberance day.
1851? wow jaco lived a long time.
I didnt think he was that old.
Is that better? ...god...picky picky...
Jaco rules. I have one of his CD's it is amazing. JACO JACO JACO JACO. He's cool. Hey, PoT, they want you to play donna lee over in miscellanious best song you can play thread. They don't believe you. Jaco Jaco Jaco. He was amazing.
Yes that is better, now he was not 136 or something.
Without sounding insensative, how did he die?
Refer to this recent thread about his death:
Rest in peace.
Jaco. the man.
If you consider yourself a legit bass player, you absolutely must own:
Weather Report - Heavy Weather
Jaco Pastorius - Jaco Pastorius
Pat Metheny - Bright Size Life
Joni Mitchell - Shadows & Light
If you had to listen to just one track on each album:
"Havona", "Donna Lee", "Bright Size Life", and "In France They Kiss on Mainstreet" from each album respectively.
If I could change anything about my life, I would have started playing bass at an earlier age and I would have started listening to jazz music, especially Jaco's playing at a much earlier age. For that matter, I would have started listening to Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, and Ray Brown at the same time. If you don't know who any of these cats are, you need to start buying jazz music right now. You'll thank me for it later.
oh yeah, and Jaco died in 1987. To sum up a long story quickly:
Jaco was trying to get into an after hours nightclub in Florida. He was totally f*cked up. The bouncer wouldn't let him it. He gave the bouncer a ration of s*it. The bouncer finally got irritated and proceeded to kick the living hell out of him. When the cops got there, they found him lying in the street in a pool of blood. He went into a coma and died 9 days later. The bouncer got charged with manslaughter and got out of jail 9 months later on good behavior.
R.I.P. Who loves ya?
That bastard bouncer should hang! I'm sorry, just getting worked up.
I hope he did. What the hell was he thinking?
Oh my God, I said hang. Damn english class with their "Crucible" book!!!
