Weather Report: Barbary Coast (1976)
When Jaco Pastorius joined Weather Report, they were close to finishing Black Market, which had been recorded up to that point by bassist Alphonso Johnson.
Jaco played on two tracks on that album, which included one of his own compositions, “Barbary Coast”.
Here’s a live performance early on in Jaco’s tenure with the band, performing that tune at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland on July 8, 1976.
I love how they jump into a version of “Come On, Come Over” around the 2:30 mark too.
