Robert Trujillo (Metallica bassist) has spent the last four years working on a documentary about the legendary bass player, Jaco Pastorius. The documentary made its debut as a “work in progress” October 6 at the Mill Valley Film Festival.  Anchored by interviews with Joni Mitchell, the film tells the story of Pastorius, a self-taught, larger than life musician who made an undeniable impact on music and reinvented the electric bass; giving the instrument a powerful dynamic voice that had both edge and beauty.  Produced by Trujillo, in association with Passion Pictures and starring a diverse group of musicians (in addition to Mitchell, the film features Flea, Sting, Wayne Shorter, Carlos Santana, Geddy Lee and many more), as well as Jaco’s family and friends.  This film unveils the story of Pastorius’ music, his life, his demise, and ultimately the fragility of artistic genius.  After the film, Robert Trujillo and director Paul Marchand will participate in a panel discussion.
