Jaco speaks??

  1. This is kind of stupid, but does anyone have any audio clips of Jaco Pastorius talking? I've never heard his voice.:)

    hehehe, that's kind of funny, I remember maybe a year and a half ago, I was on a huge jaco kick, then I realized I had never heard him speak before.

    when I finally did hear his voice I thought it was funny sounding :meh: :p

    You can hear Jaco's voice on his instructional video, on the Birthday Concert CD, and several times on the Jaco Pastorius Big Band Revisited CD just released.

    Here is some advice jaco gave to ALL his students. I pieced this together from several responses on the 1985 instructional video..."learn the melody of a song not just the bass line."

    Yup - the film : Triumph of the Underdog" and Joni Mitchell's "Mingus" album - although that was very close to his death...:(
