Just got home from work. Grabbed a cup of vodka and lime and got the urge for some jazz.

It's all good...

Good stuff - I think it's time to revisit it as it's been some 18 months.

I pulled mine off the shelf for a listen as well.

^Have you heard Joni Mitchell's Hejira album? Jaco plays a very prominent role on that.

Hey Simon, I haven't heard Hejira yet but I do have a copy of it in my collection as I bought this box-set last year:



Thanks for the reminder - I will have a listen to Hejira soon :)

Well done, that box is an excellent overview of the essential Joni through her golden decade of one masterpiece after another from her third album on.

Let me know what you think of Hejira - its one of my desert island discs

Listening to this box again today:



Ok, I think I made the point that I really love this box already - no need to post it again ;D

  I played that JP album some time ago, from the same box.  I have a big sub-woofer, set for classical. When I put on the JP, it was like vesuvius going off in my listening room.  I was actually scared, and had to bolt over and turn down the woofer ???  I'd never heard a Pastorius solo album and quite enjoyed it.
It's all good...
