Happy to you Jaco

As birthdays come and go for so many without me posting a single word, this one is different, and in these words expressed by Pat Methany…..the importance is so well capture:
“Jaco Pastorius may well have been the last jazz musician of the 20th century to have made a major impact on the musical world at large. everywhere you go,sometimes it seems like a dozen times a day, in the most unlikely places you hear Jaco’s sound; from the latest TV commercial to bass players of all stripes copping his licks on recordings of all styles, from news broadcasts to famous rock and roll bands, from hip hop samples to personal tribute records, you hear the echoes of that unmistakable sound everywhere.”
And so, with this I celebrate the sounds, the inspiration to others and the unmatched innovations that Jaco Pastorius left us with, and am thankful to the rest of the musical world who carry’s it on.
