about

Featuring jazz and fusion legends, band mates and colleagues of the legendary electric bass virtuoso and innovator Jaco Pastorius, among others: Alex Acuna, Carles Benavent, Charles Blenzig, Delmar Brown, Hiram Bullock, Kenwood Dennard, Hugo Fattoruso, Michael Gerber, Gil Goldstein, Danny Gottlieb, Billy Hart, Toninho Horta, Bireli Lagrene, Armando Marcal, Marcus Miller, Bob Mintzer Othello Molineaux, Jorge Pardo, Felix Pastorius Jaco's son, John Patitucci, Mike Stern and more . This uplifting proclamation of Jaco Pastorius' musical doctrine features a modernized viewpoint consisting of Bop induced piano jazz; thrusting, bass-heavy funk and jazz-fusion spiced up with a taste of the Caribbean and South America and much more. With this release, Jaco's Gospel is preached by over 60 world class musicians resulting in a truly, globalized perspective of his existing legacy. More importantly, the various artists' extract the bassist's inherent compositional attributes, only to reshape rhythms and melodies into a nouveau perspective. Hence, a prudent tribute that stands on its own... definitely the best Jaco tribute heard to date.

As a musician, John Francis Pastorius III (Jaco) brought change. He boldly took his instrument, the electric bass guitar, to uncharted waters, and an instrument that is commonly placed behind the music, to the front. As a musician, Jaco's talent was not confined to the bass, more than a musician, Jaco was music. The focus of this project, Gospel For J.F.P. III, is on Jaco, the composer, a man with an extraordinary ability to create music. The body of material that he himself composed is not enormous, further proof that less is more, as these compositions rightfully fall into the status of contemporary standards, and sure to pass the test of time. Involved here are many of the musicians that were part of his life, as well as others his music has touched. Needless to say, Jaco's own renditions of his wonderful compositions could never be surpassed, only interpreted, and serve as an inspiration to all those who love his music.
