Review – Hal Leonard’s Jaco Pastorius Bass Play-Along Vol 50


Hal Leonard’s Jaco Pastorius Bass Play-Along Vol 50 contains eight songs over the span of Jaco’s career.

From tunes such as “Birdland” and “Harlequin” with Weather Report, and “Bright Size Life” with Pat Metheny, to his own tunes such as “Come On, Come Over”, “Teen Town”, and “Continuum”. Then there are such greats as “Dry Cleaner from Des Moines” with Joni Mitchell and “4 A.M.” with Herbie Hancock. All eight songs are complete with easy to read notation and tablature, along with chord changes and lyrics.

The audio to accompany the book is available from the Hal Leonard library with the supplied code. The audio contains two tracks for each song, one being a demo with the bass line, and one that is called PA Mix, which is the audio minus the bass track.

Hal Leonard’s Jaco Pastorius Bass Play-Along Vol 50 available at, or at a music retailer near you!
