People do not understand how hard a jazz musician works for a living. I’m not putting nobody down, but I’m telling you nobody understands how hard jazz musicians work. Jazz is not big in the US, because the States are too worried about Pac-Man and The Police. — Jaco When Jaco Pastorius uttered the quote above in a typically entertaining and insightful interview with Guitar World from 1983, I’m sure he meant no disrespect to the members of The Police. It may be safe to say that Jaco signi...

How Jaco Pastorius Invented the Electric Bass Solo & Changed Musical History (1976)

How does one define a masterpiece? Is it personally subjective, or it is just another word we use for status symbols? In an essay on the Florida-born bass player Jaco Pastorius’ 1976 self-titled debut album, scholar Uri Gonza?lez offers an older definition: “in the old European guild system, the aspiring journeyman was expected to create a piece of handicraft of the highest quality in order to reach the status of ‘master.’ One was then officially allowed to join the guild and to take pup...

listening to joni: #8: hejira

Hejira, 1976 Front CoverPhoto by Norman Seeff; Frozen lake by Wisconsin. Hejira snuck up on me.I heard it was "wordy," "cold," and "cerebral" and that the music was "abstract". I didn't know what that meant, but it didn't seem good.On the radio station I listened to as a teenager, one of the last holdouts of independent rock radio, "Song for Sharon" had heavy rotation. That's no surprise, as it's a thoroughly New York City song. I would hear it in the background, when I was driving or ...

Goodbye Gangster Squad: Lindo Giacopuzzi, last of LAPD legends, dies at 102

The old guy eyeballed Sean Penn, and the actor didn’t fare too well. Penn was in Hollywood for the opening of the 2013 film “Gangster Squad” which was inspired by the at-times lawless antics of the Los Angeles Police Department in the 1940s and ’50s. In the movie, Penn was playing gangster Mickey Cohen. “Mickey Cohen was much better looking than that guy,” said Lindo “Jaco” Giacopuzzi, a real-life gangster squad cop from yesteryear. Jaco’s son, John, laughed as he told that story. John Giacopuzz...

Title Liberation

Meet the doctor  My interest in titles and the effect it has on the title-holder as well as the direct environment was triggered some years ago during a consultation with my physician.

DN337: Jaco Van Dormael Delivers the Gospel According to God’s Daughter in ‘The Brand New Testament’
