A TAV Curator's Pick.

“Truth, Liberty & Soul may be the entry point for anyone looking to appreciate the full reach of this envelope-pushing, boundary-busting bassist, composer, arranger and bandleader. Pastorius' life may have been cut short—far too short—but his memory and legacy will undoubtedly live on through outstanding archival finds like Truth, Liberty & Soul Live in NYC: The Complete 1982 Jazz Alive! Recording, unearthed and presented with such loving care and unerring attention to every single detail.” – AllAboutJazz

“As his time with Weather Report wound down, Pastorius threw himself into Word of Mouth. A studio album was issued a year earlier, and versions of this outfit had played in Florida, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Pastorius assembled a who's who for this date. The core band featured Bob Mintzer, Randy Brecker, Peter Erskine, Don Alias, and Othello Molineux (on steel drums). That said, the 16-piece horn section included Frank Wess, Lou Marini, Lew Soloff, Jon Faddis, John Clark, and David Bargeron (on tuba), to name a few. What's more, the grandest harmonicat of all, Toots Thielemans, was a featured soloist…

… Sure, Truth, Liberty & Soul is for the Pastorius fanatics, but it's much more: this fantastically recorded document is a treasure trove of modern progressive jazz. The brilliant music found on it serves to underscore that Jaco was more than a brilliant, singular bassist (though that would have been enough); he was a great composer, arranger, and charismatic bandleader -- a true jazz renaissance man.” – AllMusic
