Felix Pastorius' Social Experiment
FEATURING:
Felix Pastorius, Bass
Chris Ward, Saxophone
William Tatge, piano/keys
Devin Collins, drums



Making music comes naturally to bassist Felix Pastorius – call it a family tradition. His grandfather John Francis Pastorius II, affectionately referred to as "Jack", was a stand-up jazz drummer that would sing while he would swing. Felix’ late father, John Francis Pastorius III, also took up the drums as a child but later switched to electric bass, the instrument for which he would become famous. He was affectionately referred to as "Jaco."

Spending his formative years living in Florida and raised by his mother, Felix was always surrounded by a house full of instruments. While studying them all, he landed on the bass, or maybe it landed on him. While nascent yet in his career, he has paid his dues, and has earned his place amongst the pantheon of today’s great bassists. Since 2002, he has been a member of Jeff Coffin’s Mu’tet, touring with the group when the saxophonist is on hiatus from his duties with the Dave Matthews Band and The Flecktones. Since moving to New York in 2009, he’s maintained regular gigs at the vaunted Greenwich Village clubs Zinc and 55 Bar, playing with his own projects: Hipster Assassins and Social Experiment. In 2010 and 2011, he toured in Cindy Blackman-Santana’s Another Lifetime, her tribute to drummer and mentor Tony Williams. In November of 2011 he gigged with guitarist David Gilmore’s Art of Ascension, featuring keyboardist James Hurt and drummer Nate Smith. On the Yellow Jackets’ most recent tour in 2012, he was invited to hit the road with the band subbing for bassist and founding member, Jimmy Haslip, who stayed home to be with family.

In terms of measuring up to the legacy of his father, a man he’s only known through the recounts of others, Felix’ perspective is a thoughtful one. “There’s always going to be some kind of comparison or expectation,” he says, “and not only by listeners or critics, but by myself as well. I’m doing what I feel is exciting, new to me, and makes me happy. I’m just trying to have as much fun playing bass for as long as I possibly can and see where it takes me.” If his rapid progress to this point is any indication, clearly it will take him far.
