Event

Jaco
Earshot Jazz Films

Nov 04

(Stephen Kijak, Paul Marchand, 2015, United States, 110 min)

Wednesday, Nov 04 at 07:30PM
Produced by Metallica's Robert Trujillo, Jaco examines the famous bassist's life using insights from an array of artists including Flea, Joni Mitchell, Sting, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Geddy Lee, Bootsy Collins, Carlos Santana and others as well as Jaco's family, and friends. It unveils the story of his music, his life, his demise, and ultimately the fragility of great artistic genius.

There are few musicians who fundamentally change their instrument, and even fewer still who transcend their instrument altogether. Jaco Pastorius did both.

In 1976, Jaco's melodic "singing" bass style redefined the role of the bass in modern music. Almost overnight, critics hailed Jaco Pastorius as "the future of modern music," alongside popular visionaries like David Bowie, Tom Waits, Patti Smith, Bryan Ferry, Lou Reed, and Herbie Hancock.
Driven only by his own desire to create the music he wanted to hear, Jaco transformed himself from a poor and unknown, scrappy Florida boy, into an international sensation  all without any formal musical training.
