Actual Proof, by Paul Jackson, had a different bass line than the one rehearsed by the group, however, when they got to the studio, Jackson surprised Herbie Hancock with a newer version of the bass line. Herbie went with it, and the rest is history. Jackson’s Chameleon bass line made Herbie Hancock famous and rich, although Jackson was famous for not playing his funk lines the same way each time. Jackson died in Japan, on March 18, where he lived since 1985.
