Jaco (surname unnecessary)

I was first introduced to this album by my brother along with Bright Size Life, his collaboration with Pat Metheny. I had been talking with him about the sound of the bass guitar in some pop music that I was listening to and he said "If you like the sound of the bass then you need to hear Jaco Pastorius" When I listened to this album it was difficult to know just what I was listening to.
