Scores for Jaco tunes? - i.e. Word of Mouth

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Mike Flynn, May 4, 2006.

  1. Hello peeps - since I've been re-reading the Jaco bio the last couple of days and going back to the amazing Word Of Mouth - I just wondered if there was a legit source for buying some of the scores?

    I know I need to just sit there and transcribe the stuff, which is probably what I'll do - but I know there are lots knowledgable types out there could maybe point me in the right direction.

    (sorry if this is the wrong place to post this)

    There are plenty of books with transcriptions of Jaco's works in Amazon.com or any major bookstores. I recently bought 'The Essential Jaco Pastorius' book from Amazon and it has transcriptions for stuff like Blackbird, Chromatic Fantasy, Liberty City and Word of Mouth from the Word of Mouth album.

  4. Mike Flynn may be looking for orchestral scores and not necessarily bass transcriptions.
  5. Cool - thanks

    Uhuh... if that's the case, I would love get orchestral scores for Jaco Pastorius' work too :)

    I realize that, but I also figured that something is better than nothing.

    Mike Flynn may be looking for...hey, this is a fun game! I'll go second: Mike Flynn may be looking for a bath pillow and not necessarily fluffy towels.
  9. ...Right now I'm looking for a sandwich - I'm starving!

    I like this game - keep it up - but don't get too nasty.;)
