Are some of you totally crazy here? Jaco re-invented the bass single-handedly. Bass players before Jaco were just hammering out stuff, like another drum or something. Name one other bass player that got put in front of a big band or any other group, like a lead guitarist, sax player, singer... whatever! And if that isn't enough for all of you, check out the quotes from tons of great MUSICIANS not just bass players pouring out tons of praise for Jaco. Jaco wasn't just a bass player either. He was way out there on a musical level too... pure genius.
