Jaco Pastorius: 1979 Solo Performance of “Continuum”
We discovered this rare Jaco Pastorius video thanks to Ingrid Pastorius sharing it with us on Facebook recently.
This video was recorded at the Berliner Jazz Stage, live in 1979. Ingrid sets up the video with some pretty cool insider knowledge:
“…that day Jaco met Toots for the first time, had a backstage conversation with Chick about fame, was the first bass soloist to perform, and used Joni’s wireless amplification, which she used during her [Shadows & Light] tour. The last part of the video he plays along to Alan Hovhaness’ ‘Mysterious Mountain’, a very important tune for him at that time.”
