Metallica Star Sets Release For Jaco Documentary

(Classic Rock) The Jaco Pastorius documentary produced by Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo will be released on November 27. Jaco explores the short life of bass icon Pastorius - widely regarded as one of the most influential and talented electric bass players of all time.

He worked with Joni Mitchell and The Weather Report, among others, and released a string of solo albums. He died in 1987 at the age of 35 following a fight in a Florida club.

Trujillo and his partners at Passion Pictures will team up with Black Friday and Record Store Day organisers for the launch. Jaco will be released via on demand streaming services and digital download on the same day that it is issued on DVD and Blu-ray.

Also issued on the same day will be the Jaco: Original Soundtrack album. The production was made possible via a successful PledgeMusic campaign, which has already hit 166% of its target - and still has three days left to run. Read more here.
