I saw a YouTube video about Jaco Pastorius and learned a little about this album. They were all so young when it was recorded – Metheny was 21 – but it’s clear from the first song that you are hearing something legendary. There’s so much great stuff to be discovered once you start listening to jazz guitarists. I’ve gone through some jazz guitar phases in my journey of musical fandom, so I could easily go down a rabbit hole with this blog if I don’t prevent it from happening. I’ll try not to do that, if only to maintain the illusion of broad appeal for my little project here.
