Live album by the Weather Report bassist Jaco Pastorius, recorded at various venues in Japan, in 1982

Lineup features Toots Thielemans, Randy Brecker, Bob Mintzer, Peter Erskine and Don Alias

Limited edition of 1,000 numbered copies on red colored vinyl

Invitation was the third album by Jaco Pastorius and was originally released in 1983, while the bassist was a member of Weather Report. This live album is recorded at various venues during a tour of Japan, featuring his "Word of Mouth" big band. While his debut album showcased his eclectic and impressive skills on the electric bass, both Invitation and his previous album, focused more on his ability to arrange for a larger band.

This album features mostly numbers written by other artists. The exceptions are "Continuum," from his debut album, and "Liberty City" from Word of Mouth, as well as "Reza," an original number bookending his version of John Coltrane's "Giant Steps."

The band's all-star cast included Randy Brecker, Bobby Mintzer, Toots Thielemans, Peter Erskine, Othello Molineaux and Don Alias.

Invitation is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on red colored vinyl and includes an insert.
