4.0 out of 5 stars Encompassing and relevent, 14 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Jaco: The Extraordinary and Tragic Life of Jaco Pastorius (Paperback)
I almost bought the first version but am happy I waited for the revised edition with the excellent Bobby Bobbings CD teaser. The only criticism is that even though the source material is much better the family and fellow musicians still gave the impression of griping over some of Bills conclusions. I was confused by this and have read a lot of reviews that have become more positive with time. I put this down to people getting some distance to the events and looking more factually and am happy that this version has got it right. There could have been slightly more from the New York years as Mike Stern is very much alive and should be able to give some very factual information but I guess that will have to wait until he's ready. To be truthful they were Jacos worst years and his downhill journey is very upsetting. There is no safety net for people who are capable of damaging themselves in the USA. I like to think that this wouldn't have happened in another country where the state can intern you for your own good if you are suicidal. You will learn a lot from this book and love Jaco even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book., 6 July 2010
This review is from: Jaco: The Extraordinary and Tragic Life of Jaco Pastorius (Paperback)
I found this a wonderfully written, fascinating book about a brilliant musician. Jaco is one of my musical heroes, and this book satisfied my desire to learn about his life. It has a tragic ending, but it seems his was a vibrant and full life, with wide ranging musical achievments. A book that can be read more than once, buy it!
