re pterodactyls pair-o-dactyls

re Jaco Pastorious
He was Joni Mitchell's bass player during the 70's. I'm fond of Don Juan's Reckless Daughter. I also like his self-titled album. He also was in the band Weather Report. Try the album Heavy Weather. I'm sure musick will come up with some more good reccomendations. After all, he reccomended him to me

I called Dag to ask about albums by Jaco for you, dxb. Dag's the real fan of Jaco (being the REAL bass player in our household; I also play but my skill is nothing compared to his). One of the songs that Dag really likes is actually Jaco's version of America the Beautiful, which apparently is on his live album called "Invitation". The guy manages to play two or three part harmony with a single pair of hands on his bass!!! It IS quite nice. And sounds pretty much impossible to learn.

Now, asking Dag advice about one of his favourite musicians is kind of hopeless because every album is accompanied by a statement like "Oh! That's a WICKED album, too!!" So he suggests, in no particular order, Word of Mouth, Portrait of Tracy, and his self-titled album. Hope that helps!

ok. sorry. try this:

Jaco rocks! too bad he couldn't stay off the drugs... no telling what he'd be playing today. his work with Weather Report is terrific. love Heavy Weather.

Since you's already covered most of the Jaco story, I'll add "Night Passage" by Weather Report as a prime contender for the best of Jaco in WR... and "Bright Size Life" by Pat Metheny and a mentor of mine named Bob Moses, which opened most peoples' ears to Jaco.

yep, faldage, that was the message I got as well. The heading at the top of the screen was Bad Referer.

But apart from that, it's a great site, etaoin. I might even fork out good money for it. Thanks for drawing it to our attention.

I love Double dactyls.... I wrote one about a horny songwriter (which is as close to a horny poet as you can get...)
