Brilliant, this remains a classic
on 29 July 2001
The fact that Jaco Pastorius had the basic seeds for what was to be Continuum at the age of 18 shows what a mature composer he was. This album (made when he was 25-26) shows all the hallmarks of a great musician/composer. The most beautiful piece on the album is Portrait of Tracy, made even more amazing because most of the piece is played with harmonics. Not only does this album show unmatched technical ability but also melodic and rhythmical ideas that still amaze me today. The bonus tracks show jaco's amazing stamina as he sits back and just plays the grooves and lets other solo. Every track is a standout track and i recommend this album to anyone with a passion for music.
