That whole concert was off the hook and the frustration of the brass during Dry Cleaner is palpable. Joni knew exactly what she was doing when she enlisted Jaco. This particular song IS an example of Jaco in the pocket, in a very Jamerson type of way.

Yes, I was serious, I don't know that I've ever seen him play so subdued before. The band was very good, great of course but sounded like they may have drank too much coffee. I'll have to watch the whole concert, thanks.
Jaco always had a great pocket in my opinion. It might not have been at the speed a lot of people like but his time was tight.
I used to play and sing this song, but not like that! Vocally I got close, but that's about it.
The original bassline on Freeman In Paris was Wilton Felder, and it too was perfect. Court & Spark is one of the perfect albums in music history in my opinion, not a wasted note on it.
Car On A Hill is 3 minutes & change of some of the most incredible music I think has ever been produced.
Yup, you don't sign up players of the calibre of Jaco and Pat Metheny and then limit them to playing root notes and block chords only. She knew what she wanted.
In addition to playing complex music at an all-world level, whatever he played was genius. Jaco could play simple r&b patterns so cool and smooth, like no one else. A master is a master is a master.
I got to perform this fantastic tune and Goodbye Pork pie hat for a singer's final exam at my second year in music school 1997... it was a great ensemble band, great players and we used the shadows and light as a reference for our performances. Great memories.
I always thought Jaco was in the pocket !?!
I love watching that concert.
Go find 'Word of Mouth Orchestra.'
There’s an old saying: Like attracts like.
Take musical genius at the level of Joni Mitchell’s and it’s small wonder some of the best of the best wind up on the same stage with her.
Absolutely! Just a beautiful, wonderful work of recorded art. I still love listening to it.
Sad that too few see it. But yes, I agree!
Saw them do that show live. Excellent. How many are still with us now?
Answer: not enough
He is always in the pocket. He got RnB roots
The guy played drums and those make very good bass players. Nothing surprising here. Even Portraits of Tracy is in the pocket, a heart pocket. Try running a metronome with it. You'll be surprised
