Robert Trujillo, in association with Passion Pictures, has announced the official multi-platform release of the "Jaco" documentary, directed by Mr. Paul Marchand and Stephen Kijak.

The film - which chronicles the brief but extraordinary life of the American musician/composer Jaco Pastorius - will be available via VOD, streaming services, and digital download on Friday, November 27, 2015.

Jaco will have its official DVD/Blu-ray release that day, in association with Record Store Day and Black Friday 2015. That same day will also see the release of "Jaco: Original Soundtrack," Sony/Legacy's official musical companion to the film.

Trujillo - bassist with Metallica and the film's Executive Producer - will celebrate "Jaco" and Record Store Day Black Friday 2015 with a special in-store at The Sound Garden in Syracuse, NY. For details, head to this location.

"Jaco" has earned applause at a number of festivals, including the inaugural Asbury Park Music in Film Festival and the Montreal International Jazz Festival. The film "(captures) the essence of what made Jaco such an influential artist," declared the Montreal Gazette, praising "the glowing words of Marchand's interviewees and the many recorded and live musical excerpts that he lets speak for themselves" and hailing the movie as "an enlightening introduction to a groundbreaking musician."
