Jaco - The Chicken

Here's Jaco Pastorius getting funky on "The Chicken", from the end of his Modern Electric Bass video in a trio with John Scofield on guitar and Kenwood Dennard on the drums.  "The Chicken" was written by James Brown saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis.  This version is relaxed and loose, as the trio format allows the players to fill in spaces left by the others, and features solos from all 3 guys.  Missing is the huge "Soul Intro" Jaco incorporated into the song with his big bands.

Tabs and transcriptions can be found here and here.
