Felix Pastorius is a rising young, yet accomplished bassist. The son of bassist Jaco Pastorius, Felix began playing bass guitar, at age 10, inspired by Flea, Les Claypool and Victor Wooten. 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.
