Happy birthday, Jaco: Stories from Robert Trujillo, Armand Sabal-Lecco (and you!)

Happy Birthday, Jaco! To help us celebrate, Robert Trujillo and Armand Sabal-Lecco shared their birthday wishes, in celebration of Jaco’s birthday and the launch of this new site.

Robert Trujillo

Three weeks ago I was walking around the center of Washington DC – must have been around 12:30am. The streets were completely empty, my wife Chloe and I had a huge dinner with my band mates. She didn’t want to partake in a post-meal walk through the streets of DC in the middle of the night with me, as she was tired and cold, so I went on a solo mission. I proceeded only to find myself lost, like a Twilight Zone episode… lol.

I tried to wrap my head around the situation, and as I started to feel a bit strange and nervous, my iPhone – for no apparent reason – started playing music… Jaco’s music! I’m hearing “Night Passage” from my pocket! At first I thought there were exterior speaker’s around the government buildings. Anyway, I took it as a comforting Jaco message sent from above.

My selected playlist of track’s from his first solo LP, and some Weather Report tune’s grooved me back to the hotel safely.

You’re here in our hearts and souls, always remembered.

Happy Birthday Jaco Pastorius.

Armand Sabal-Lecco
