#9. Jaco Pastorius – ‘Come On, Come Over’

Your dad might have some good records.

Mine had this. He wouldn’t have looked out of place in Pink Floyd or something. Jaco was certainly a rock star persona in a jazz man’s world but that didn’t stop him from making his mark musically. I wish I knew more about fusion so I could write more but I don’t want to look like a fool. But the guests on this track say it all, don’t they? Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, David Sunburn, Michael Brecker……all names that have been drummed into your head since childhood if you have a jazz musician for a father.
