Editorial Reviews

JACO, a compelling story of prodigious talent, personal adventures and raw human vulnerability presents the world of the bass guitar phenomenon Jaco Pastorius through the eyes of his family and various musical collaborators. Produced by the Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, and directed by Paul Marchand and Stephen Kijak, this blistering biopic contains incredible unseen footage and photography from the Pastorius family archive, and takes viewers into the heart and soul of this hugely influential cross-genre artist. Featuring interviews with an array of artists (Flea, Joni Mitchell, Sting, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Geddy Lee) and friends, 'JACO' unveils the story of his music, his life, his demise, and ultimately the fragility of great artistic genius.

Disc 1 features the full length film with Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Running time: 1 hr. 57 min.

Disc 2 features DVD Extras - Outtakes, Anecdotes, and Stories - with 30 never-before-seen interviews with Joni Mitchell, Bobby Economou, Peter Erskine, Chuck Doom, Al DiMeola, Carlos Santana, Bootsy Collins, Geddy Lee, Herbie Hancock, Flea, Victor Wooten, Juan Alderete, Lenny White, Les Claypool, Mark Egan, Meshell Ndegeocello, Mike Stern, Nathan Watts, Randy Brecker, Richard Bona, Sting, Tommy Strand, Victor Bailey, Joe Diorio, Ira Sullivan, Bobby Colomby, Bob Moses, Anthony Jackson and Alphonso Johnson. They discuss Jaco's incredible contributions to music, the art of the bass and the boundaries of music, as well as Jaco the person. Hear stories about Jaco's earliest bands and classic recordings. Includes special footage used during the historic Hollywood Bowl (Jaco s World) Tribute Show 2015, plus many surprises. Running time: 1 hr. 40 min.
