Felix Pastorius is a rising young bass force poised to broaden the technical and musical conceptions of the instrument. The son of bass immortal Jaco Pastorius, Felix tried violin and piano before settling on bass guitar, at age 10, inspired by Flea, Les Claypool and Victor Wooten. Joining the band of Weather Report percussionist Bobby Thomas, Jr., at 15, Felix gained invaluable performance experience. Upon attending a Wooten Bass Camp at 19, Felix was recommended by Victor for the bass slot in Jeff Coffin’s Mu’tet. Three albums later, Felix had fleshed out his surging style on 5- and 6-string bass, leading to stints with Cindy Blackman and his own steady gig at the Zinc Bar in New York City. In late-2011, Felix auditioned for and landed the bass chair with Grammy-winning jazz mainstay, the Yellowjackets, at last providing an international platform for his forward-thinking fretboard work. Back at home in Brooklyn, Felix also pushes musical boundaries with his playing and writing in Hipster Assassins and Social Experiment. Bass Guru is excited to present Felix’s educational debut via his thought-provoking lesson packs.
