Thanks to all who came to the Red Wheelbarrow Poets’ Jaco Pastorius Birthday Party at GainVille Café Nov. 22 and to all who played- VICTORIA WARNE, PETER McCULLOUGH, MARK FOGARTY and BILLY CARRION Jr.
The set list was AMERICA (Mark); BLACK CROW (Victoria); JACO JAM -THE CHICKEN (Pete and Billy); DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES (Pete and Mark) and, via the miracle of technology, Jaco himself on DREAMLAND and CHROMATIC FANTASY.
The spirit of Jaco was very much alive in Rutherford, NJ as the bass maestro’s 62nd birthday was recognized! Other musicians played during the terrific open mike and were named honorary bass players for the night. FRAN LOMBARDI was our fine featured poet.
December is an off month for the holidays but we’re set to be back at GainVille Jan. 24, see you then!
