I don't much about this recording besides what I've typed above which was written on the CD envelope I got in
a trade many years ago. The recording is low generation soundboard of Jaco playing bass with Randy Bernsen on
guitar along with a drum machine. Each track is basically a bass solo and extended jam with excerpts of various
tunes. There's an emcee at the beginning and end of each track introducing Jaco and Randy as 'NRG' which was
the house band at this club, 'Jumping Jacks in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The jams and bass solos are rocking, funky
and full of energy. The date is of this recording in a bit uncertain, but it was definitely in early 1987, just a few
months before Jaco's untimely and tragic death. His bass playing skills are still top notch in this recording. This is
some pretty rare Jaco music from what I was understand. Jaco was truly a pioneer of modern bass playing!
