    Aw, man. Fusion takes another hit. The Headhunters band was the best of the best. RIP.

    Paul Jackson, who as bassist for Herbie Hancock's Headhunters helped secure the first million-selling jazz album, died on March 18 in Japan, where he had lived since 1985.

    He was 73. His death was confirmed on social media by his longtime musical associate, drummer Mike Clark.

    Jackson worked as a sideman with a wide variety of artists, from Santana and the Pointer Sisters to the jazz saxophonists Stanley Turrentine and Sonny Rollins. But he is undeniably best known for his association with Hancock, which lasted through most of the '70s.
