Hailed as the “greatest bass player who ever lived,” Jaco Pastorius (1951-1987) lives on through his groundbreaking legacy of musical brilliance. And now for the first time, one of Jaco's private students imparts the wisdom gained from one-on-one lessons with the bass genius himself. Complete with songs, solos, techniques, theory, and personal experiences with Jaco, this one-of-a-kind book/CD is finally here to give the world what it craves – bass guitar lessons with Jaco Pastorius. We've even included a few scans of actual pages of Jaco's personal practice book – in his own handwriting – for the ultimate personal Jaco experience.
