It's Music Monday! Today we look at a clip of Jaco Pastorius, the maestro of the fretless bass, who was known to occasionally quote the Goldfinger theme. Video from a December 12th concert in 1986. During his career, Jaco played as a solo artist, as well as with with Pat Matheny, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and as a member of Weather Report. He passed away in September 1987 at the age of 35. Jaco was known for his singing bass and it's very cool to hear his take on this James Bond classic. Enjoy!
