Robert Trujillo Presents - Jaco


JACO offers a captivating narrative that delves into the world of the extraordinary bass guitar virtuoso, Jaco Pastorius. This compelling biopic, produced by Metallica's bassist Robert Trujillo and directed by Paul Marchand and Stephen Kijak, paints a vivid picture of Jaco's prodigious talent, personal adventures, and raw human vulnerability through the perspectives of his family and various musical collaborators. The film is enriched by a treasure trove of previously unseen footage and photographs from the Pastorius family archives, providing an intimate look into the life and artistry of this immensely influential artist who transcended musical genres.

Featuring interviews with an impressive lineup of artists and friends, including Flea, Joni Mitchell, Sting, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Geddy Lee, 'JACO' unveils the multifaceted story of Jaco Pastorius – his music, his life, his tragic decline, and the fragility inherent in great artistic genius.

Disc 1 of the film boasts a runtime of 1 hour and 57 minutes and is presented in full-length with immersive Dolby 5.1 surround sound. On Disc 2, viewers are treated to a treasure trove of DVD Extras, including outtakes, anecdotes, and stories. This supplemental content comprises 30 never-before-seen interviews with luminaries such as Joni Mitchell, Bobby Economou, Peter Erskine, Chuck Doom, Al DiMeola, Carlos Santana, Bootsy Collins, and many more. In these interviews, they share their insights into Jaco's remarkable contributions to music, the art of the bass, and the boundary-pushing nature of his musical endeavors, all while shedding light on the person behind the legend. These conversations also touch upon Jaco's early musical collaborations and iconic recordings. Additionally, viewers can relive the magic of the historic Hollywood Bowl Tribute Show in 2015, known as "Jaco's World," with special footage and unexpected surprises.

In the words of Rolling Stone's David Fricke, "Produced with a loving but honest grip... JACO is a fitting gift of afterlife," and as the New York Times' Nate Chinen aptly puts it, "Enough rare footage and flickering insight to feel like something special." This film is a profoundly evocative portrait of a musical icon whose legacy continues to resonate with audiences worldwide.
