Jaco would show up to gigs with whom he never met the musicians and demanded that their regular bass player sit out so that he played.

I like how he took that Tobacco SunBurst bass of his and Shaved off the Frets to make it more like a Piccolo Bass.

How did he die? Didn't a security guard at a club beat him to death?

'The lyrics [to 'Come on, Come Over' ] were not written out by Jaco, possibly Bob Herzog,
but the corrections were by Jaco himself, as well as the [above]
which he wrote on the back in the center of the above page.'

JACO PASTORIUS

John Francis Pastorius III was born on the 1st of December 1951 in Pennsylvania, the son of a jazz drummer named Jack Pastorius. His family called him Jaco. Initially, the young Jaco started life as a drummer, before switching to bass at the age of 13, learning the instrument at a ferocious pace that startled his family. His large hands, long fingers, and double jointed thumbs were a perfect physical match for the instrument he would make famous and bring great respect.

Jaco's first bass was purchased for $15 at a local pawn shop. By the time he was 16 years old, after only about a year of study, he was already considered by the local musicians to be the best bassist in South Florida.

At age 17 he was regarded as the best bassist in all of Florida being widely recognized for his unique muted 16th-note funk finger style.

In the summer of 1968 Jaco swapped his only acoustic upright bass for his very first Fender Jazz Bass, a 1960 model. In the early 70's, as his stature on the Florida circuit grew even more, Jaco purchased his now world renowned 1962 Fender? Jazz Bass?, which at the time was a fretted model. Jaco converted it to a fretless model by pulling out all the frets and filling the grooves in with marine epoxy.

An important part of Jaco's sound was his use of roundwound strings. Around this time, Jaco was becoming well known for coating his fingers with fried chicken grease before going on stage, in order to lubricate his playing.

Jaco's first big break as a bassist came in 1972 when he was asked to join 14-piece band, ?Wayne Cochran and the C.C Riders.'

During this same period Jaco deeply immersed himself with careful research in the sounds of the Caribbean. He frequently worked in cruise ship lounge bands that sailed to the ports of St. Thomas and Nassau. While docked, Jaco would go out and jam with the local calypso and reggae musicians. This Latin Caribbean style of music had a profound influence on Jaco, and later on he would directly integrate it into his own style of music.

For a short period of time Jaco taught bass part-time under the direction of Will Lee's (David Letterman) father at the University of Miami. There he also conducted and played bass in the student jazz ensemble. Fretless bass virtuoso Mark Egan was one of his students at the time and has now gone onto his own international acclaim. While at the University of Miami, Jaco had the fateful encounter of a lifetime when he was introduced to Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter for the first time backstage at a Weather Report concert.

Weather Report was the premier fusion band of the 70's. Its core unit consisted of pianist Joe Zawinul and saxophonist Wayne Shorter, both Miles Davis musicians of the 1960's. Jaco made a special guest appearance on a couple of cuts from Weather Report's 1975 release, Black Market. Then on April 1, 1976 Jaco officially took command of Weather Report's bass duties when he replaced Alphonso Johnson.

At the time, Jaco also appeared on a number of side projects that were first released around that time including ground breaking bassmanship with Pat Metheny, Joni Mitchell, and Al Di Meola. However, it was Jaco's work and larger than life stage antics with Weather Report that helped catapult him to the ranks of musical superstar.

In 1976 Jaco single handedly changed the course of bass history with his astounding self-titled debut recording, Jaco Pastorius . This landmark, multi-Grammy Award nominated recording literally rocked the bass world and is considered by many bass historians as the defining moment of Jaco's career.

In 1977 Weather Report released Heavy Weather ; Jaco's first full-time recording as a member of the band. This album featured two Jaco originals, Teen Town and Havona , along with the heavily radio played Birdland , which was one of the first compositions ever to introduce rock and pop listeners to jazz.

In 1981, Jaco introduced us to his own big band with his second solo release, Word of Mouth . As the leader of his own 20-piece big band, Jaco featured his skills in composition, arranging, and production. This recording consists of what many musicians believe are Jaco's finest compositions including 3 Views of a Secret , the wonderfully arranged Liberty City , and a blazing arrangement of J.S. Bach's Chromatic Fantasy.

After taking his Word of Mouth big band on tour, Jaco released Invitation in 1983 which was comprised of a variety of selected live cuts from the previous year's tour dates in Japan.

In the mid 80's Jaco began to lose touch with reality. At this time he had a serious drug problem that could be traced back to the days of Weather Report. He continued to perform in various lineups with selected members of his Word of Mouth big band, including most notably guitarist Mike Stern.

By July 1986 of that same year Jaco was committed to the psychiatric ward of Bellevue Hospital in New York where he was sedated with medication and diagnosed as manic depressive. The next year of Jaco's life was spent as a virtual vagrant, sleeping rough.

Jaco Pastorius died on September 21, 1987, just short of his 36th birthday after being beaten by a nightclub bouncer.

Although his death went largely unreported at the time, Jaco's legend quickly grew to his current status of ?The World's Greatest Ever Bassist.? Jaco single handedly influenced more bassists than any other player in the history of the bass tradition and will continue to influence generations to come.
