    as great as jaco's talent was, and it was considerable, he could also be a real jerk.

    but no one should have to go the way he did.

    a sad day, indeed, when he died.

    later, chris

    Jaco was a manic depressive. That wasn't his only problem as he led a self-destructive life with alcohol and drugs.

    One of my favorite bass players was James Jamerson, the Motown session player. He was extremely creative and in my opinion, probably the one responsible for the Motown groove. I recommend getting the Dr. Licks "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" publication. When I bought it a long time ago, it was only available with cassettes. Now the audio is on two CDs.
