Overview

Collecting tracks the innovative jazz bassist recorded during the '70s and '80s, it includes cuts off his two studio albums as well as some of the work he did with the seminal fusion outfit Weather Report. Also featured are recordings he made with other artists including Herbie Hancock and Joni Mitchell. As a two-disc anthology, this is a hard collection to pass up, and certainly includes all of his most well-known recordings, not the least of which are his 1976 take on Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee," Weather Report's "Birdland," and the Mitchell tune "Hejira." A well-rounded representation of Pastorius' unique genius. – AllMusic Guide
