More than two dozen tracks, totaling over 2 1/2 hours of music, on two diverse, brilliant, career-spanning CDs!
Presents the first commercial release of three rarities: the 1968 home demo "The Chicken," recorded in Jaco's bedroom; "Amelia," captured live in 1972 with Wayne Cochran's C.C. Riders; and 1982's "Good Morning Annya," from the never-finished, often bootlegged Holiday For Pans.
Features the all-time classic "Birdland" off the album Heavy Weather, from Jaco's stellar stint with Weather Report.
Highlights Pastorius guesting on tracks by artists including Joni Mitchell, Michel Colombier, Pat Metheny, The Brian Melvin Trio, and more.
