Jaco and Weather Report

Remember Jaco Pastorius? I’ve been a fan of the band Weather Report for decades. So, when an old buddy sent a link to this live concert earlier today, I was once again reminded of how awesome their live gigs were. The venue is the Montreux Jazz Festival 1976, where I, incidentally, seven years later in 1983, stood below the very same stage where Jaco Pastorius played his seductively reductive baselines, listening to the then-popular bands Musical Youth and King Sunny Ade.
