Jaco Pastorius: “Chromatic Fantasy”, Live (1986)

When Kevin sent me this video, I was stunned… such a rare gem and an excellent closeup of Jaco Pastorius performing solo in 1986. This was during one of his gigs with drummer Brian Melvin.

I don’t recall many videos of Jaco performing “Chromatic Fantasy”, but this one has to be among the best of the best. (Here’s another, from his tour of Italy with Bireli Lagrene).
