Glad is getting aired in Denver.  Here in North Carolina UNC-TV has decided
to run it on the HD Stations only and not making it available for the
regular analog
viewers even though UNC-TV has about twenty repeaters across North Carolina
which will not be able to see this series.  It is a shame such a wonderful
program and Art Form is not being shared in a state that has such
capability.  ALOHA  Tom

> Following the success of Word of Mouth Revisited, the critically
acclaimed and award winning 2003 release on Heads Up International, the
Jaco Pastorius Big Band has crafted a second chapter in their ongoing
tribute to the brilliant legacy of the bassist/composer/arranger from whom
they've taken their name. The Word Is Out! 
> On this second outing, the Jaco Pastorius Big Band again addresses Jaco's
compositional genius, this time with newly expanded arrangements of pieces
that harken back to 1976, that pivotal year in Jaco's career when he
appeared on three near-simultaneous releases - Weather Report's Black
Market, Pat Metheny's Bright Size Life and his own self-titled debut - that
stand today as major landmarks in his fabled career.
