I came across this video of Jaco performing “Continuum” live at the 1979 Berlin Jazz Festival. He uses a wireless system and walks around the auditorium while playing this classic composition from his debut album.
If you’re new to Jaco’s music, this is a good place to start.
By the mid ’80’s, Jaco’s struggles with substance abuse and mental health problems limited his musical clarity, but this performance in 1979 is a shining example of why Jaco is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential bassists ever.
