- Big Name Fan: Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo produced a documentary on Jaco Pastorius, titled Jaco.
- Black Sheep Hit: "Birdland" is a lot more accessible than most of the band's material, and most jazz fusion in particular.
- Magnum Opus Dissonance: A weird example. AllMusic lists the band's first album as the "Album Pick" instead of Heavy Weather, which features their best-known song, "Birdland" and Face of the Band Jaco Pastorius.
