Jaco Pastorius‘ “The Chicken,” live in Montreal. Bob Mintzer-sax, Randy Brecker-trumpet, OthelloMolineaux-steel pans, Peter Erskine-drums, Charles “Don” Alias-percusion.

As talented as Pastorius was, he was diagnosed as bi-polar, and despite medications, lived on the streets for weeks at a time. He died in 1987 at age 35 from head injuries incurred during an altercation with a bouncer at a nightclub in Florida.
