This sequel to the 2003 tribute Word of Mouth Revisited showcases the compositions and arrangements of the legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius. It features Pastorius-influenced bassists, including Victor Wooten, Mark Egan, Gerald Veasley, and Marcus Miller, with a number of Pastorius' ex-sidemen, from trumpeters Randy Brecker and steel drummer Othello Molineaux to drummer Peter Erskine. Peter Graves–a bandmate of the flashy bassist when they both lived in Florida–leads this big band and sticks close to Pastorius' original conceptions, as evidenced by the Latin-tinged "Las Olas," guest-starring the Cuban bass giant Israel "Cachao" Lopez.

Javier Botella gathers those velvety nuances and all the refinement of the themes of that time to adapt them to his voice and personality, as if a contemporary crooner was. COPA ILLUSTRATED is a classical formation: double bass, drums, piano, saxophone, trumpet, trombon and voice,
In which each of its members brings experience, know-how. And musical and vital trajectory to a common project where the fundamental meeting point is the passion for quality music. The elegance of the chosen repertoire is another point of cohesion, and of enjoyment. It sounds round, with a lot of swing!

Jaco Pastorius at the height of his powers – working here on a set of smoking live recordings that feature both the Word Of Mouth Sextet, and a larger big band! The core combo features Pastorius on some really incredible bass – that re-worked approach to the electric instrument in jazz that went onto inform many generations of players – matched with the core energy of Randy Brecker on trumpet, Bob Mintzer on tenor and soprano sax, Peter Erskine on drums, Don Alias on percussion, and the surprising addition of Othello Moineaux on steel drums – which makes for some very interesting moments. Toots Theielmans joins the sextet at one point – and the larger group features Jon Faddis on trumpet, Wayne Andre on trombone, and Mari Cruz on tenor and soprano sax. Titles include "Reza", "Giant Steps", "Twins", "Eleven", "Okonkole Y Trompa", and "Amerika".

Recorded live at Budokan, Tokyo, September 1st 1982, Osaka Festival Hall, Osaka, September 4th 1982, Yokohama Stadium, Yokohama, September 5th 1982. I almost rated this recording a 4 because of the 20+ year old recording technology. But then I listened more seriously and was truly taken back with the fun roller coaster ride that Jaco and his 20 piece band took me on. With players like Don Alias on Percussion, Randy Brecker on Trumpet, Peter Erskine playing smoking drums and too many other heavyweights to mention I was taken to a really good place. From Jaco's incredible playing to Erskine, Brecker, french horns, tuba etc. this album goes where very few go even today. All I can say is buy it and hold on to your seat!

The Count Is In! is strictly a showcase for the band. The 12 cuts cover a broad range of styles and demonstrate the band's versatile and exciting playing. Almost every member of the group has solos that display a broad spectrum of musical ideas.There are no weaklinks in this chain. The Jazztech Big Band is quite simply awesome, one of the finest ensembles one could wish to hear, and this disc catches the group at the top of its game.

Bassist Jaco Pastorius was the Jimi Hendrix of jazz. Before he left this world in 1987, he virtually created the fretless bass with an unorthodox playing style that turned that instrument into a highly tuned, electrified African talking drum. This long-overdue, two-CD compilation details the incredible, but incomplete arc of this artist's genius that encompassed the R&B, Caribbean, fusion, and jazz-rock idioms. Jaco-heads will revel in these legendary sides that made Pastorius famous. There's his solo rendition of Bach's "Chromatic Fantasy," his dreamy improvisations on "Midwestern Nights" with Pat Metheny, and, of course, the 1976 Weather Report megahit, "Birdland." There are also a few unreleased tracks including an early home recording of "The Chicken" and a live version of "Okonkole Y Trompa."

The quality of the material, the band, and the production on this CD are absolutely superb.I believe this is one of Buddy's best ever albums.If could only have one Buddy Rich CD, I would probably pick this one!

Thankfully, there is finally a definitive Jaco Pastorius anthology that offers an accurate portrait of the breadth and depth of his innovative artistry beyond what his contributions to Weather Report and his own Word of Mouth and Trio of Doom (which many would argue are sufficient in and of themselves) would suggest. This two-CD, 28-track collection ranges across the fretless bass inventor's earliest recordings, documented by a live appearance with Wayne Cochran's C.C. Riders and home playing the Cochran standard "Amelia," to his work with underground R&B act Little Beaver and such artists as Pat Metheny, Mike Stern, Joni Mitchell in and out of the studio, Paul Bley, Airto and Flora Purim, Michel Columbier, Brian Melvin, and his diverse projects.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Clare Fischer's big-band release was only briefly available as an Atlantic LP but it has finally reappeared in the CD era after a brief appearance under another title on LP some ten years after its first release. Fischer's potent originals and first-rate arrangements bring out the best in his musicians, which include Warne Marsh and Conte Candoli (featured on "Miles Behind"), Bill Perkins on a work trumpeter Stewart Fischer specially composed for the baritone saxophonist ("Calamus"), and alto saxophonist Gary Foster featured with Marsh on Lennie Tristano's "Lennie's Pennies."

Tim Davies, who led a big band in his native Australia before relocating to Los Angeles in 2000, reprises that experience on parts of The Expensive Train Set, returning home to supervise his Melbourne ensemble on four selections, presiding over his Los Angeles-based band on four others, and somehow managing to blend the two groups together as one on the ambitious title song, which Davies calls "the centerpiece of the album," as well it should be. Whereas Davies' previous album, Dialmentia, was focused in part on his recurring nightmares, Train Set undrapes a more amiable theme, the singular experience of becoming a father, as Davies recently did. In fact, the opening number, "Conceivilization," is arranged to depict in musical terms how shall we say this? the act of making love, with two soloists in each movement playing the part of the lovers. Be sure not to miss the exciting climax!
