Pastorius, Jaco -& Word Of Mouth Big Band
Aurex Jazz Festival In Tokyo 1982
Bass wizard Jaco Pastorius is considered one of the worlds greatest masters of the instrument. After playing with Pat Metheny and Paul Bley in the mid-70s, he joined Weather Report in 1976, remaining with them until 1982, when substance misuse and mental health issues sparked a rupture. Live At Aurex was recorded during a maiden voyage to Japan, undertaken with a 21-piece big band; the astounding recording showcases his blinding bass skills, as well as the complex arrangements he oversaw as band leader.
