This is Oakland Park's opportunity to honor the 'The World's Greatest Bass
Jaco grew up here, went to school here, and changed music history here.
>From his 1976 debut to today, Jaco is a legend around the world.
Though a brutal beating ended his life in 1987 at age 35,
his music and memory live on stronger than ever.
It's been nearly 20 years since his death and nothing has been done to
honor him in his hometown. The naming of the new downtown park
would be a fitting and lasting tribute to a man who heard the music
in the life of Oakland Park and south Florida. It will be a welcoming
place for residents and visitors.
And a music legend will finally be recognized by his hometown.
Afterward come and enjoy live music by
Way Of The Groove at
132 E. Commercial Blvd.
