Thirty years ago, the greatest jazz-rock bassist of all time died tragically. Soloist, virtuoso, Jaco Pastorius has influenced a whole generation of musicians. He remains today an absolute reference who marked his time, whether in Joe Zawinul's group Weather Report with guitarist Pat Metheny, or with singer Joni Mitchell.

Biréli Lagrène, who shared his stage, wishes to revive his memory. He's playing electric fretless bass on the major titles of his career, joined with the Multiquarium Big Band of André Charlier and Benoit Sourisse. The repertoire will feature tracks from The Birthday Concert, Twins, Invitation, Word of Mouth and some excerpts recorded during his participation with Weather Report.
