The Jaco Pastorius Big Band: The Word Is Out!

The tragically shortened career of bass guitar maestro and jazz composer Pastorius included a start at something resembling big band: the Word of Mouth big band. The best parts of the second CD to revive this idea are very good, but other portions suggest he never got far enough ahead to create a basis for this sort of revival to build on.
