| Must-see ! Good for bassists and people who also want to learn about 70s music industry
i watched this movie about Jaco Pastorius at the European premiere in Munich/Germany this week and did like it. As a hobby bassist i'm heavily influenced by Jaco and there's footage in the movie previously unseen. There's funny moments in the movie and many interviews from the musicians Jaco collaborated with as well as Jaco's brother and you'll hear also from Jaco's first wife Tracy and others who were close to him. The film accomplishes to draw attention to Jaco and make him aware to other people. It never accuses anybody of anything and stays neutral and objective. While as someone who plays bass i wished that more footage was included from his earlier days like how he changed from drums to bass and how he developed his technique, i'm grateful for the people who made this happen and showed lots of footage and people's views on Jaco Pastorius along with his great music and him being a pioneer changing the e-bass and influencing future generations of players.
