    I downloaded a poorly labeled video clip, about 20 mb in size, where Jaco is seen warming up and then running through Portrait of Tracy. The whole thing looks like its in a studio or some kind of sound stage.

    At first I thought the clip was from the Modern Electric Bass video, but his clothing doesn't seem to match the clothing on the cover of the video, nor does his bass (he's playing his 62 defretted jazz in this clip, but on the cover of that video he has a fretted jazz with a maple board..)

    Anyone else seen this clip? Where's it from?

    I think I've seen the same video clip. (If Jaco's wearing a white top.)

    It's a excerpt from Weather Report's 1976 concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Jaco had only recently joined the group.

    Yeah I got that clip, posted it here on talkbass and got no replies :(

    I don't know anything about it either unless what david says is true.

    I think that they way he plays "Portrait of tracy" in that segment is pretty interesting, with all those crazy stops and what not.
    also whats REALLY impressive to me at least is when he's blazing through "okantole y trompa" at like 2 times the recorded speed.
