Resonance Records presents another previously unreleased gem in association with NPR Music, following 2016's critically acclaimed Sarah Vaughan release Live at Rosy's. Truth, Liberty & Soul — Live in NYC: The Complete 1982 NPR Jazz Alive! Recording captures the iconic bass innovator Jaco Pastorius leading a 22-piece big band on June 27, 1982 at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City as part of George Wein’s Kool Jazz Festival. Featuring a congregation of the top jazz musicians on the New York scene at the time such as Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, Randy Brecker, Jon Faddis, Frank Wess, Lew Soloff, Howard Johnson and others, along with the legendary harmonicist Toots Thielemans as a special guest, Truth, Liberty & Soul showcases Jaco’s brilliant compositions for large ensembles with electrifying energy of a live performance.

A portion of the concert was previously broadcast on the NPR program Jazz Alive! in 1982, and has been available as unofficial bootlegs, but this is the first official release authorized by the Jaco Pastorius estate, Warner Music Group and NPR Music and contains an additional 40 minutes which never aired. Culled from the original 24-track tape reels, this is the complete concert from start-to-finish, with the sound meticulously restored for release and mastered by the original recording engineer from the broadcast, and multi-Grammy award winner, Paul Blakemore.

Truth, Liberty & Soul will be available as a 2CD package and deluxe 3LP boxed set exclusively for Record Store Day (April 22, 2017) and includes an extensive liner notes insert (the CD book is 100-pages with the same material!) featuring rare photos by Tom Copi, Don Hunstein, Rene Perez and Donna Ranieri, essays by acclaimed jazz writer Bill Milkowski (author of Jaco: The Extraordinary and Tragic Life of Jaco Pastorius) and producer Zev Feldman, the original recording engineer Paul Blakemore, as well as interviews with Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, who produced the award-winning documentary JACO (2014), and musicians - drummer Peter Erskine, saxophonist Bob Mintzer, trumpeter Randy Brecker, bassist Victor Wooten and more!
