Not worth the money! (6/2/2010)
A terribly inaccurate mess. The transcriptions are missing accidentals, omitted notes, or just plain wrong. A very sloppy layout as well with its "handwritten" look. Look elsewhere.

Awesome (10/28/2009)
I''ve owned this book for a number of years. While there are some mistakes in the book, the best thing about it is that there is no tab to get in the way of working things out on the neck and using your ears. I would think it is time the book was updated with corrected music and legible notation.

Sloppy (7/3/2008)
I agree more with Erik and Larry in that this book has a lot of errors. Take a look at all of the missing accidentals in Donna Lee. They read as A flat when, in fact, they are most certainly A naturals. That is one example of many where one will find they have to fix this book before learning the pieces. Also the "handwritten" layout is screaming for some of the new music transcription software that exists out there. It is in need of a revamping!

spot on (7/1/2008)
Not for tab readers, but if you''re a note reader, this is the most accurate book of Jaco transcriptions out there.

Poorly Done (1/3/2008)
There are lots of errors and omissions in this so called "note for note" work. It is also very poorly "hand written" and doesn''t have tablature for those in need. Not the best Jaco book by a long shot.

Larry - Cherry Hill, NJ
Superb (5/3/2006)
This is the authoritative book for any Jaco fan. The transcriptions are spot on and the song selection is excellent and quite comprehensive, with 26 of Jaco's greatest recordings. I purchased this book a good 15 years ago and after being unavailable for a long, long time, it's nice to see that The Book of Jaco is once again available to Jaco fans the world over. I recommend it highly for all practicing bassists.

Well... (3/23/2006)
It could've been better. There are no tabs and some tunes ain't a 100% correct. But this is still a godd way to learn Jaco's riffs and solos.
