On November 30, 2015, METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo was interviewed at Paste studios in New York City about “Jaco”, his new biopic on the life and legend of Jaco Pastorius. You can watch the chat below.
“Jaco” has sold out advance screenings at film festivals worldwide, and has won acclaim from critics and fans alike. Featuring an all-star cast of interviews that includes Joni Mitchell, Sting, Flea, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Geddy Lee and more, “Jaco” offers a rare look into the life and legend of Jaco, from his scrappy self-taught youth and rise to fame, to his tragic downfall and final days.
“Jaco”, which is available via VOD, streaming services, digital download and on DVD/Blu-ray, tells the remarkable and tragic tale of Jaco Pastorius, a self-taught, larger-than-life musician who single-handedly changed the course of modern music by redefining the sound and the role of the electric bass guitar. Never-before-seen 8mm film, photographs, and audio recordings unveil the true story behind Pastorius‘ all-too-brief life, his music, and heartbreaking end.
