Description

‘Few people in the history of music have single-handedly transformed the way an instrument is played; virtuosi are strewn across the centuries and tales of their superhuman performances stir our imagination. Fewer still are performers who create a manner of playing so original that it forces us to see the instrument anew. With technique that exceeded the limits of physical endurance and musicality that attained oceanic depths, Jaco Pastorius created a style of playing that reinvented the electric bass. This is not to say that others haven’t advanced the instrument and contributed to its evolution, it’s just that Jaco started a revolution.’
