Bassist Jim Joel Santos sent this fun video our way. Jim took the Pee Wee Ellis tune made famous by Jaco Pastorius, and created his own slap bass arrangement of it.

We dig it. How about you?

  1. funky…my only advice would be to stand up! You’ll find that you put a bit more umph into it standing.

  2. Really great job! We still hear the original groove of Pastorius’ version and you add your awesome skill of arrangement and slapping. Once again, really cool!

  3. Lets see a video of trey playing this and I guarantee he sucks.
