Jaco Pastorius: The Complete Shadows & Light Solo

For years, Jaco Pastorius‘s “Slang” solo on Joni Mitchell’s Shadows & Light DVD has been a wildly popular clip.

Turns out, we’ve only heard part of it.

Obviously, someone in the editing room decided to cut Jaco’s solo down for the DVD. Thankfully, we can now hear the complete solo, including parts of “Chromatic Fantasy”.

The solo was recorded live a little over 30 years ago at the Santa Barbara County Bowl, on September, 9th 1979.
