A “fretless” conceptual birthday, in honor of “Jaco” Pastorius (born 1951), one of the greatest musicians of his generation, who passed away prematurely in 1987.
Best known as a member of Weather Report (led by Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul), Jaco is also recognized for a diverse solo career and collaborations with Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, and Johnny Mitchell. His revolutionary musical approach to playing the bass combines an understanding of advanced harmonies, complex rhythms, virtuoso technique, use of overtones, and, of course, for pioneering the fretless bass.
On this birthday, we seek to arrange, on one fretless conceptual neck, a set of “Jaco perspectives” as a shared homage and tribute to one of the most influential bass players of all time.
