Jaco's best moments (IMHO) came when he was playing with the band Weather Report. I highly recommend that you all check out "Heavy Weather", "Mr. Gone" and the live album "8:30". Here is a Latin tinged groove that oozes Pastorius. Listen to Bernie's hi-hat and use it as a reference point to play from, and be careful not to rush this groove, which is easy to do. You are going to need complete control over the 16th notes to place them right where they need to be in the beat to make this groove happen.
