This is the Jaco Pastorius Big Band at the Tokyo Blue Note 2004.
Each bassist played 2 to 3 tunes with the band each set and the finale was a 4 bass version of "The Chicken"
I played the bass line, Victor Wooten played rhythm, Jimmy Haslip comped & Gerald Veasley played lead. It was an AWESOME experience!
