    WHAT: 
    LOS ANGELES, CA (June 24, 2015) – Herbie Hancock, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association’s William Powers & Carolyn Powers Creative Chair for Jazz, will join an all-star line-up of special guests for Jaco’s World, and host the evening at the Hollywood Bowl on Wednesday, August 12, 2015. Celebrating the late, visionary bass pioneer Jaco Pastorius, the concert brings together many jazz greats performing the iconic Word of Mouth album as well as other repertoire he was renowned for performing, reimagined by Grammy-winning arranger Vince Mendoza. Clips from the documentary JACO will also be featured on the Bowl’s big screens.

    Herbie Hancock, who performed on Word of Mouth, will introduce Wayne Shorter and his Quartet, who opens the show, as well as introduce the special guests and serve as host throughout the evening.

    Bassist Victor Bailey, who was previously announced as part of the line-up, is unable to perform due to a scheduling conflict. He is replaced by bassist Will Lee.
