Jaco documentaryJaco is a documentary film on legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius produced by Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and directed by Paul Marchand and Stephan Kijak. Geddy Lee is one of the many musicians interviewed for the film and a short snippet of Geddy discussing fusion music from the documentary can be seen below or on YouTube here. The film was first screened last year at the Mill Valley Film Festival on October 6th and at the Grammy Museum on December 8th. It also headlined the first annual Asbury Park Music in Film Festival this past April where it was awarded the Foundation Award (Presented to the Asbury Park Music Foundation's selection for the APMFF premier film). Loudwire reported earlier today that the film will be released in association with Passion Pictures via Video on Demand, streaming services and digital download on Friday, November 27th. It will also be made available on DVD and Blu-Ray as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday promotion. An associated soundtrack will also be released that day via Sony/Legacy and can be pre-ordered here. You can follow the film on Facebook and on Twitter for all the latest news.
