Book - 1995
Rate this:
Chockful of new insights about Jaco's early years, along with new revelations about his tragic final days and never-before-seen photos, this very special Anniversary Edition takes a greatly expanded look at the man who revolutionized his instrument. During his meteoric rise from South Florida phenom to international jazz star, Jaco altered the course of modern music and opened a door that generations of bass players have since walked through. "It ain't braggin' if you can back it up," Jaco often said. As this book shows, he always did. Book jacket.
