“The greatest bass player in the world.” That’s how
the virtuostic electric bassist John Francis Patorius
III, better known by his stage name Jaco Pastorius,
would introduce himself to people. Looking back on
his long and eclectic discography, a legitimate case
could be made for such a claim. Acclaimed and
celebrated for his time in the jazz fusion ensemble
Weather Report, Pastorius sought to elevate the
role of the bassist, and was equally well known for
his wild stage antics and presence, as for his
revolutionary bass techniques. (Pastorius is
credited for inventing the fretless electric bass, and
for pioneering the use of syncopated “ghost note”
basslines as well as false harmonics.)
Frequently lost in the shuffle of his celebrated work
with Weather Report is Pastorius’ own solo
material, which prominently featured his innovative
bass stylings. His solo debut (Titled after his own
stage name) was released just prior to joining
Weather Report, and featured a remarkable lineup
of jazz legends like Herbie Hancock, Randy
Brecker, Wayne Shorter, and David Sanborn,
among many others. At the center of Jaco Pastorius
of course, is Jaco himself, providing bass virtuosity
to a selection of audacious arrangements, and
compositional chops that were mature well beyond
his years. (Pastorius was only 24 at the time of the
album’s release.)
