We are pleased to announce a very special addition to the London Bass Guitar Show (LBGS) 2016 line-up. We will be screening the UK premiere of the world’s first documentary about LBGS star Robert Trujillo’s hero, Jaco Pastorius—the self-proclaimed greatest bassist in the world. Funded entirely by Trujillo, Jaco hit cinemas late last year to critical acclaim and believe us, you do not want to miss it.
