I saw Whether Report back then and he did the same thing with them.
But I have always thought he was using tape, because myself I was
looping with a Roland Chorus Echo (Tape Delay with "Sound On Sound"
switch) in the seventies and at the WR gig I couldn't get close
enough to see what gear Jaco used. But that kind of "show man"
looping wasn't my interest anyway at that time. I was just thinking
he tried to act funny and pull a joke of people's admiration for his
playing abilities ;-)
