Prime Jaco - Rick Suchow Does It Again

Rick Suchow has another buried treasure of a bass video that he just posted.

Rick is a bass player in New York who has played with Ringo Starr and a very long list of "cats", and I don't know who he has the videotape of with a live girl or a dead boy, but somehow he manages to get his hands on some of the most amazing off-the-map bass related materials around - isolated tracks from Jamerson and McCartney, videos of old classic shows, rehearsals before the Letterman show and SNL - some of it is unbelievable. Go check out his site, or add him on YouTube at - http://www.youtube.com/user/ricksuchow

But first, check out what he added today, what he calls a "never before seen" video of Jaco doing his signature tune,Teen Town, with Weather Report in 1977, which is prime Jaco, just about at his all time peak - clean, sober, and tearing it up. Check it out. They extend the song quite a bit, and Peter Erskine gets to let loose.Video de Ridiculoso!
