The legendary Jaco Pastorius is featured in this solo clip. It’s a right tasty example of his unique approach to the electric bass. Filmed at a concert in 1980.  He was in Joni Mitchell’s band at the time. She’s also a hero of mine, by the way. For those unaware, as you’ll find out, Jaco Pastorius is to the bass as Hendrix is to the 6 string.
