Of all albums with Jaco that I own, this is the one I listen to the least. Even Brian Melvin's Nightfood gets more play. In part, it's that I find that acoustic guitar string snapping sound irritating. "God Must Be A Boogieman" honestly does very little for me. It grows on me, though. Now, Jaco's all over the place on that record, but I really miss that four-on-the-floor feeling that's so nice to hear when there's a ride cymbal playing four. Joni Mitchell did say "Jaco's so good he needs a bass player". That doesn't sound like a compliment to me, and Joni Mitchell knows music. She has an album called Mingus, fer chrissakes. So, in Mingus, did Jaco sacrifice music history to make bass history? I feel that album would be better if the playing were more conventional. How do you feel?
