Four-String Craftmanship

“A chimpanzee could learn what I do physically. But it goes way beyond that. When you play, you play life.” 

 – Jaco Pastorius (1951 – 1987)

“It’s a continual thing. You’re never good enough. James Brown always instilled that in me…that you’re never good enough, no matter how much you’re chillin the audience, even if they’re fainting and sweating.”

– Bootsy Collins (1951 – )

— Regarded as one of the most influential bass players of all time, John “Jaco” Pastorius was inducted into the Down Beat Jazz Hall of Fame in 1988, one of only four bassists to be so honored (and the only electric bass guitarist).  — American funk music legend William “Bootsy” Collins rose to prominence as James Brown’s bassist.
