Jaco Pastorius

1951 - 1987

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Bass/double bass/cello

Genres: Fusion, Jazz

A supremely gifted musician, Jaco Pastorius burst out on the music scene in the 1970s. His melodic acumen, superior technical skills and boundless imagination made him one of the most prominent bass players in modern jazz. Renowned for his showmanship, he was most comfortable taking on the leading role, although he could very well fill the shoes of the trusted sideman - which he did for Paul Bley, Pat Metheny and Joni Mitchell. His promising career was unfortunately cut short by mental health problems.
