If I was GB, I'd be smiling ear to ear!
What's the saying?
"You know you've made it when people find the time to write bad things about
you!"
It's all good!

> 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.
