Still reconnecting with this old record that I loved 35 years ago…. If “A Remark You Made” is the album’s neglected gem, “Birdland” is the song everyone knows. But it’s a classic for a reason. Again Jaco Pastorius’s bass is astonishing. Listen to the song, and then listen again, focusing on the bass line alone.
