Rick Suchow: Music

Bass Solo featuring Blackbird & Amerika (6:49)

(Jaco Pastorius Word Of Mouth Quintet, 4/13/81 - click title for details)

A stunning solo featuring 'Blackbird' and 'Amerika', and if you listen closely you'll hear a bit of 'Tomorrow' from the play 'Annie'. I believe this is Jaco's very first live performance of America The Beautiful (later titled 'Amerika' and released on the 1982 set 'Aurex Jazz: Twins').

Recorded live by Rick Suchow at Seventh Avenue South, 4/13/81
