4:00 P.M. ~ 6:00 P.M. A SHOWING OF THE FILM JACO Jaco Pastorius, the man who revolutionized how the bass guitar is played and who was, for many, the best and most influential bass guitarist ever, is being remembered for his amazing contributions to music in the independent film Jaco Directed by Paul Marchand and Stephen Kijak and produced by Robert Trujillo of Metallica, the film includes some incredible insights from an array of artists including Flea, Joni Mitchell, Sting, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Geddy Lee, Bootsy Collins, Carlos Santana and others as well as Jaco’s family, and friends. It unveils the story of his music, his life, his demise, and ultimately the fragility of great artistic genius. A Meet & Greet follows the showing with the director, sons, family and friends. $25.00 per person.
8:00 P.M. THE JACO PASTORIUS BIG BAND CONCERT There are few musicians whose breathtaking technique, coupled with searing innovation, inexhaustible creativity and a charismatic personality, has made him a bass legend like none other before or since. As one of the members of the fusion jazz band Weather Report, Jaco’s melodic “singing” bass style redefined the role of the bass in modern music and Weather Report remained one of the defining acts within the jazz form.
The Jaco Pastorius Big Band, formed by long-time friend and fellow performer, Peter Graves, is a tribute to Jaco’s legacy as a compositional genius and bass virtuoso. This 15-piece concert band features Ed Calle on saxophone and Julius & Felix Pastorius on drums and bass in a concert of fusion funk by unforgettable, world-renowned musicians. The concert will include selections of Jaco’s original songs and arrangements. $65.00 per person.
