GW, Thank You for digging this out of the archives. I didn't get to read it the first time it was published. I'm a big Jaco fan, and this was a great read. I can't help but wonder how nerve-racking it must have been to be in the presence of Jaco. Seeing as his mind (and sometimes mouth) seemed to always be going 100 miles an hour. Again, thank you.



Thanks for posting this, GW! Jaco was and still is one of my favorite bassists of all time. If he was still living today, he would have at least made more music and get some more recognition than he deserved.
