"Excellente! David is rippin' it up. The sky is the limit. I love it."
-- Robert Trujillo
"David Pastorius has a lot of heart and soul. He plays his tail off. This new record is as good as his last record, if not better."
-- Mike Stern
"I've listened to this CD a zillion times. I love it. A great fusion of jazz, rock, and funk. The musicianship and composition is excellent. David Pastorius lives up to his name!"

"After playing the "Sense of Urgency" CD the first time, I immediately put it in the player at my gym. It is what I listen to daily when I work out. It's so invigorating and intense that it puts me into high gear every time I hear it. I hear so many influences -- Victor Wooten, Stanley Clarke, Andy West -- along with the 'elephant in the room'. The writing has stepped up ten fold and would chart with the best of them. What I like most is the ability to use styles that are familiar, yet so amazingly original. Big things are coming down this hi-way for David Pastorius and Local 518."
-- John Tristao, Lead Singer with CCR
"Sense of Urgency" features David Pastorius on bass with Local 518 members Al Brodeur on guitar and keyboards, Bjarne Jannik Kjaer on drums, steel drums and keyboards, Anthony Darmana on percussion and Dijeradoo and Dave Hoag on keyboards. Other performers on the CD include Alex Petrosky on drums, Ken Page on keyboards and Jowee Omicil on soprano sax.
Sense of Urgency has 16 original tracks, each written or co-written by Pastorius. In case you did not make the family connection yet, David is the nephew of the late and legendary Jaco Pastorius. Don’t let the family ties fool you, David approaches the bass with a completely unique style and pulls influences from Miles Davis, Mr. Bungle, Jimi Hendrix, The Police, Beethoven, Bjork, Coltrane, Bob Marley, Paco De Lucia, Anthrax, Tool, and The Clash to name a few. This combination along with his incredible technical prowess have given David a sound all his own. Adding Local 518 to the mix makes for a groove-heavy, progressive album that will not disappoint!
