Essential Solo Efforts

From Jaco's debut to his work with Word of Mouth, he single-handedly reinvented the electric bass forever. In 1976, the music world changed forever with the release of Jaco Pastorius.

Weather Report
Jaco ignited Weather Report and propelled them into super-group status.
Joni Mitchell
Joni Mitchell searched long and hard for a bass player that didn't exist... until Jaco.

Both Pat Metheny and
Jaco released debut
solo efforts in 1976,
with Jaco performing on both.
Guest Appearances
Jaco was sought by many musicians to appear on their records, and there are many great guest appearances out there as a result.
