Product Description

Amazon.com

It's a grand gathering of the Lords of the Lower Frequencies: bassists Marcus Miller, Victor Bailey, Victor Wooten, Jimmy Haslip, Christian McBride, Gerald Veasley, and Richard Bona are united under a groove to celebrate their hero, Jaco Pastorius. Jaco's homeboy Peter Graves (who employed the bassist in his south Florida big band before he hit it big with Weather Report in 1975) was the mastermind behind this awesome assembly. Under Graves's direction these Jaco gems, mostly from his Weather Report days and his first solo recording, highlight Pastorius' powerful influence. Of course, old standbys like "Havona," "Teen Town," and "Barbary Coast," with Haslip, Wooten, and Veasley, remain true to Pastorius' fluid, bullet-like basslines. The African-born Bona, arguably the most Jaco-like performer on the date, turns in a beautiful and eerie rendition of "Punk Jazz," which is contrasted by Marcus Miller's more Stanley Clarke-ish, avant/hip-hop take on the same tune. Jaco's voice is heard all through the CD, and through the magic of technology, his bass part (taken from a live recording) drives the R&B bounce of Herbie Hancock's "Wiggle Waggle." --Eugene Holley, Jr.

Customer Reviews

If you are a fan of Jaco's and/or the Jaco-period Weather Report, this work is a must have.
B. Arthur
O.K., for all of you Jaco-heads out there looking for more bootlegs or undiscovered J.P. recordings on this disc, you will be sorely disappointed.
Robert M. Baker
I really enjoyed this cd. been a Jaco fan for years, and I try to play his music (got sheet music for both him and Weather Report.)

Jaco Pastorious was recognized more for his innovative Bass playing than his compositional skills. When you mention his name, most people talk about his masterful technique on fretless bass and his flamboyant stage presence. "Word of Mouth Revisited" sheds new light on his exceptional writing skills. Using musicians from the original "Word of Mouth" Big Band, Peter Graves shines the light on Jaco's compositional magic that provided the foundation for him to innovate on the Bass. Using a pool of Bass players that includes Jimmy Haslip, Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Richard Bona, Victor Bailey, Jeff Carswell and David Pastorious - the Bass magic is not lost in the mix. This music succeeds on multiple levels. Graves was even bold enough to arrange some of Jaco's Weather Report tracks to explore their unique color and texture. The Big Band arrangemet of "Havona", "Barbary Coast" and "Elegant People" are my favorites.
Some Jaco purist will criticize these efforts, but like Mingus' Big Band - sometimes the beauty of your work shines even brighter when someone else crawls inside your tunes and mines the gold that you left behind. As a result of this recording, my respect for Jaco's writing abilities are now equal to my appreciation for his innovative Bass playing. For this music fan, Jaco was a gift with multiple talents. I think he would have enjoyed this recording of his work. Thanks Peter for making his compositions shine so brightly.

Well, maybe there will be multitude of reviews from bassplayers around the world, read 'em and enjoy!
I will offer the alternative words(I am primarily a guitarist and pianist, I have my own "heroes" too in my "idioma"..)
This CD, most importantly offers for me a few nice treasures, as
1) new material , or seldom recorded material from the Jaco songbook, and
2)A chance to listen to some bassmen who I do not usually have much chance to hear, specifically Marcus Miller and Jimmy Haslip.(I mention only two, but all the bassmagicians on this recording are quite enjoyable).
The basswork not ignored,
but the wonderful arrangements , replete with some beautiful chord voicings keep alive what was inevitable if Jaco had lived, further advancement of his unique melodic , solo ,and harmonic visions.
Usually, postumous releases wear thin quickly, but not the case on this recording.
Aside the "usual" compositions, a glorious reading of one of Jaco's first compositions "Domingo", and incredible arrangements of "Killing Me Softly.."(the song made famous by Roberta Flack) and Wayne Shorter's "Elegant People" are highlights.
Hard to pick and choose from the standard Jaco~Weather Report compositions, "Havona", "Punk Jazz",..an electric "(Used to be a)Cha-Cha"...."Nas quebradas" (burnin!)
I do not elaborate as much as usual, as excellent liner notes provide informations on alla the tracks " striaght from the mouth of the lion".

O.K., for all of you Jaco-heads out there looking for more bootlegs or undiscovered J.P. recordings on this disc, you will be sorely disappointed. Jaco shows up on number 11 in a bass-track excised from a live performance of the band in the early 1970's. The rest of the tracks are covered in the lower end by some of best bassists in the business. That said, this recording is more proof why there is no-one living who can do what Jaco did with the same style, funk, and taste. While the performances are quite good, there's alot more finger-wiggling going on than actual bass-playing (save for the tracks played by Jimmy Haslip, Jeff Carswell, David Pastorius, and, surprisingly, Victor Wooten). Why I give the disc five stars is because it is an excellent set of performances by the artist(s) listed on the cover - the Jaco Pastorius Big Band, neé The Word of Mouth Band, neé The Atlantean Driftwood Band, neé The Peter Graves Orchestra. Many of the players have been with the band for years and they show why they are some of the best in the business on their respective instruments (I've had the pleasure of seeing the band live a few times). Particularly appreciated are the guitar tracks provided by the elusive Randy Bernsen, marimba by Gary Mayone, drums by Mark Griffith, and hand drums by Bobby Thomas, Jr. The horns and reeds are also some of the finest in the business. The real purpose of the record is the presentation of Jaco's compositions, arrangements, and ideas (expertly arranged and interpreted by his long-time associate, Larry Warrilow) by a first-rate and inspired band. It is a fitting tribute and further proof why Jaco was heads above all others. As Mr. Graves stated, if I may paraphrase, Jaco will long be remembered for his compositions more than for his bass.Read more ›

This album gathers several of today's most prominent electric bassits for an "all-star bassist" reunion to honor Jaco's music. I find it to be really good overall. All bassits get to show their stuff, some tunes are creatively re-arranged, and the sound is good. I find, though, that, maybe due to the fact that every bassist (except Marcus Miller, who self-produced his track) went through the same preamp in the studio (I read this in a detailed article on Bass Player magazine), the bass sound on every track is almost the same. They all sound very similar to Jaco most of the time, both in the bass sound itself and in the phrasing of the solos. While I am aware that this IS Jaco's music after all they're playing, they could still be more individualistic within the framework of the compositions - I mean, if you're going to solo, solo like yourself, don't try to ape Jaco's sound and style. If I didn't know beforehand that 10 bassists were used on the recording, I might have thought that it was actually just 2 or 3 bassists. Also, some reviewers, especially H. Lamberg, talks about some terribly irritating noises. I checked again, even on the exact same spots that he indicates, and I did not hear anything. So, you'll have to listen and decide for yourself. If you ask me, the sound is pretty good.
The fact that these compositions can stand the addition of new ideas, new arrangements, and still sound undeniably like Jaco, is a testament to his immense talent as a composer. I commend these musicians and arrangers for a job well done. Jaco's spirit is alive in his music, and forever will be, as these people have lovingly demonstrated.
