In-Edit Beefeater 2015: Jaco


Paul Marchand, Stephen Kijak. USA, 2015. Original language, Spanish subtitles. 117'.

Jaco Pastorius was THE bassist – a tortured and complex being, innocent and haughty, who turned music (jazz or otherwise) on its head. This monumental film is bursting with stars and archive, revealing the rise and fall of Pastorius, from Florida to stardom, and from there to the gutter. Flea, Sting, Joni Mitchell and an unparalleled line-up of jazz-funkers trace his path.
