Album Review

The crisp camera work and tight close-ups capture every wrinkle on the faces of Jack Bruce and Robin Trower in this concert recorded at a single show, February 28, 2009, in Holland. Even before a note is played, Bruce remarks about how "wonderful" the vibe is in the hall. Trower also seems to be enjoying himself working with one of his idols and a true bass legend. The duo then proceeds to play, in order, all but one song from Seven Moons, an album that was released just prior to the show. That explains the less then exuberant crowd reaction to all but the three Cream ringers that pepper the set list since the material was unfamiliar to everyone but the guys on-stage. Only the brooding "Carmen" is reprised from the twosome's previous releases a quarter decade ago. Surely a few Trower nuggets sprinkled into the set would have been a welcome addition. Neither frontman is terribly magnetic nor even very mobile as Bruce hovers behind his microphone, gamely reading lyrics from a music stand and Trower is rooted in one spot, stage right, giving good guitar face but not much other movement. Still, you don't come to a show like this expecting any more pyrotechnics than what the journeymen musicians generate with their hands. The camera work is unobtrusive yet the Surround Sound, especially Bruce's bass through the subwoofer, is what makes this a must-have for fans who already own the studio album and the subsequent live disc, the latter of which is missing only one track and some between-song banter from the video. Drummer Gary Husband is impressive to watch, especially since his contributions are relatively subdued in the studio version. Bruce's vocals have lost some of their power and malleability over the years, but he remains one of the most recognizable voices in rock. It's refreshing to see both headliners as they enter into geriatric status (Bruce was 66 at the time of this gig, Trower two years younger), still enthusiastically writing and playing new music, albeit in a somewhat dated prog-blues style.
