The DVD / BluRay release is a two-disc set. Disc 1 is the film and Disc 2 Features bonus material: 30 never before seen interviews with Joni Mitchell, Carlos Santana, Bootsy Collins and many more. They talk about Jaco's incredible contributions to music, how he changed the instrument as well as musical boundaries, and also Jaco the person.
JACO had its world premiere earlier this year at Austin's SxSW Film Conference & Festival, and has appeared in many film festivals around the world winning awards at the inaugural Asbury Park Music Film Festival as well as the Athens Film Festival.
The film "(captures) the essence of what made Jaco Pastorius such an influential artist," declared the Montreal Gazette, praising "the glowing words of interviewees and the many recorded and live musical excerpts that he lets speak for themselves" and hailing JACO as "an enlightening introduction to a groundbreaking musician."
"A brilliant film about a brilliant musician. I love every minute of it." - Michael Kurtz, co-founder, Record Store Day.
