Not sure about Moses but you’re correct! Hell, Jaco would make almost any drummer sound great.
He made me sound great that one night, on one song in Ft Lauderdale on Spring Break in 1983. He sat in with my old oldies band (he was University of Miami school friends with our sax player). Played one song, Johnny Be Goode. A night I’ll never forget.

i watched a YouTube vid last week, The Lost Jaco Tapes (close enough). Peter Erskine was just gushing about him. There was some real love there.
