A flamboyant performer, brilliant musician, and one of the
founders of jazz fusion, Jaco Pastorius
was the most innovative electric bass player of all time, creating a
fluid sound on the fretless bass that leapt out of the rhythm section into the
front line. Jaco is in peak form with a top notch band of hand picked musicians
in his only full concert performance on DVD.
