Don't even waste your time with the (very) truncated single Cd version Invitation. This original 2 cd is totally superior in EVERY way, mixing, mastering, excitement levels and features the complete versions of the songs as Jaco prepared them for release.May cost 4 times as much, but is 10 times better.

Jaco Pastorius playing style here does not compare to his marvelous early recordings with Weather Report or solo. You will get disappointed if that's our beloved Jaco's sound you are looking for here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jaco Big Band 8 Jun. 2000
By John Simley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Until Birthday Concert came along, this was the only decent live recording of the big band that Jaco assembled for a world tour in 1982, after taking a permanent break from Weather Report. The only big name big band formed in the 1980s, its inclusion of non-traditional instruments shows the influence of Gil Evans' bands (and the exclusion of piano and guitar is really refreshing). This recording nearly masks the fact that Jaco was sinking deeply into manic depression, and losing some of his edge. Still, you get to hear a rare and excellent performance of Elegant People (not available on the truncated American release Invitation), and an interesting bass solo in the monumental Reza. Also included are live versions of Liberty City, Three Views, Okonkole, and Continuum, all notable for their arrangement and presentation by a very fine band. But Twins, named for his recently born twin boys, is so much banging and clanging. Entirely too much time is given to Toots Theilemans (assuming a harmonica is warranted for such a band, Jaco would have been better served by a gutbucket soul man). The recording suffers a bit from the polite Japanese audience, dutifully applauding, where any other audience would have screamed approval. The band collapsed after this tour, weighed down by expense and Jaco's mounting emotional difficulties. If you collect recordings by Jaco, this would be a good one to buy, after Jaco Pastorius and Word of Mouth.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Recording is Fresh! 25 Mar. 2004
By C. Baldwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Curtain Began To Fall Quickly 1 Jan. 2008
By Best Of All - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bassist Jaco Pastorius formed this big band for a 1982 world tour, which had some magical performances and incredible frustrations away from the stage.

The band ultimately imploded due to the deteriorating health of Pastorius - who threw his bass into Hiroshima Bay, along with exhibiting other signs of self-destructive behavior. But these 13 selections released in Japan in 1983 - and in a condensed U.S. version, entitled, Invitation - highlights the triumph before the curtain abruptly fell on Jaco's remarkable career.

The textured layers of instruments - the Word of Mouth Big Band lineup of Don Alias (per), Randy Brecker (tr), Peter Erskine (d), Bobby Mintzer (sax), Othello Molineaux (steel dr), Toots Thielemans (har), along with 14 guest musicians appearing in the two September shows - compliments Jaco's tenacious leadership through his rapid, melodic bass runs.

Liberty City is a gem, with other top-flight cuts in the mix; Three Views of a Secret, Reza/Giant Steps/Reza and Pac-Man Blues (Fannie Mae). The music is even more electrifying and fresh some 25-plus years later through the digitally-remastering, which utilizes 24-bit technology. This is truly a gem that deserves to finally be heard in its entirety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of his best 17 Feb. 2016
By Edward C. Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have Jaco's studio recordings and I like them a lot, but these live renditions reveal an even greater depth to Jaco's abilities as a writer and arranger of big band music. It's difficult to believe he was on the verge of complete breakdown when this music was being made.
