Bookmark and Share I’ve brought up that distinct Jaco sound to some of the well-known bass players I’ve had the pleasure to meet, ie Gerald Veasley,JImmy Haslip and Victor Wooten,and some of the local professional bass players not-so-widely-known.They all agree that Jaco chnaged the electric bass with his groove, his way of making the bass a lead instrument. Even the classical bass players say he was a pioneer, never to be forgotten.

Bookmark and Share What goes lost at times with Jaco is the fact that he was a remarkable composer of music. Three View of a Secret, Havona, John and Mary, Liberty City, Portrait of Tracy...the list goes on and on. Not bad for such a short life. Imagine what he would have written had he lived.

Bookmark and Share I hear you - I hear you, I hear that line. But how many times do you hear the quasi-vibe and the 16th notes and the most common thing of all: Hitting that back pickup and pulling the trebly brittle out of it. How funny that has become distinctly Jaco when it is a superficial slice that he never even sounded like if you listen to all warmth pouring out of him. I heard Pat suggest to some to "move on" - yeah, but you can’t. You move on, you do your thing and there he is. Not in you, but in front of you. Like Hendrix, he’s part of the fabric of music now. Hard to know where his influence begins and ends. You don’t try to "move on" from Hendrix. You can’t - because he’s all around. All you can do is once in a while let Jaco’s music get into you, feel the vibe, then slowly, with visceral humility, find your self again. Let his energy, drive, and exuberance fuel your self discovery and bring out your unique resonance to the world. That’s the difference between impression and expression.
