Editors’ Notes

Two veterans of the ‘60s British blues boom, Cream’s Jack Bruce and Procol Harum’s Robin Trower (who released two albums together back in the early 1980s) reunited in 2008. And like any two old friends they pick up where they left off, with strong, solid blues riffs, enviable guitar tones, and Bruce’s distinctive, authoritative vocals, which after a bout with cancer have returned in full force. Bruce has been rightfully hailed for his influence with Eric Clapton and Cream; however, Trower has remained a player’s player, roundly acknowledged by his peers for his Hendrix-inspired tone and emotively pure performances, while sadly neglected by the mainstream. Seven Moons is unlikely to make new converts (unless there’s another sudden blues boom!), though anyone listening to the brooding insistence of  “Distant Places of the Heart,” the passionate grunt of “She’s Not the One” or the pleasing shuffle of “So Far To Yesterday” will hear the same epic greatness that made Trower albums such as Twice Removed from Yesterday and Bridge of Sighs the important releases they were for emerging heavy metal guitarists in the early 1970s.

Customer Reviews

Jack Bruce and Robin Trower team up again

The rock/blues duo have released another album, and they lay down some great grooves. Trower is at his best, playing the blues guitar licks that he's famous for, and what keeps us fans coming back for more. Bruce belts out his signature vocals, and the result is quite good. Both Jack Bruce and Robin Trower seem to gel with each other quite well, and the result shows. While some of the peices are very good, some seem a bit restrained, like they could have given a little more, and the result would have been amazing. Overall, a good album, not the best ever, but good. Check it out if you're a fan of either Bruce or Trower, or if you're into blues/rock. Both of them are good at it on their own, but together, they form a great duo.

it keeps getting better!

Initially, I was not thrilled with the idea of this third collaboration. The first two sounded more like Trower and less like Bruce, with his bass buried in the mix and none of his signature sound as Cream member or solo artist. This release is different. It sounds like a real collaboration of equals. Bruce's vocals are great -what a pleasant surprise after what he's been through! And the songs are catchy and clever. Trower has now sounded like Hendrix for longer than Hendrix ever did - so it's ok to just enjoy the man's artistry. Repeated listening will yield a depth of emotion and ideas hidden just below the blues riffs.

Trower and Bruce haven't lost a step

This, the third effort from the power duo, is a balanced production of well recorded and masterfully played compositions. Aside from the thoughtful and insightful compositions, there is no way telling these icons are now senior citizens (not that it's a bad thing.) Trower, once again, reaches a new height of artistry. His Fender Stratocaster lush with Fulltone effects soars and titilates. As a blues guitarist Trower continues to write new chapters in methodology and technique; and Bruce's operatic vocals have lost little over the years. The songs are are soulful, funky and unmistakenly hard rock. Trower revisits his Hendrixian roots and lays down rhythms ala Band of Gypsys/Experience. The riffs are countered with Bruce's sage lyrics and smooth yet poweful singing. Robin Trower's soloing is more complex, exploratory and, quite frankly, better than ever. This is a must-listen for all Trower and Bruce fans, as well those appreciative of modern blues and excellent musicianship.

Although some may be tempted to call multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and composer Jack Bruce a rock & roll musician, blues and jazz were what this innovative musician really loved. As a result, those two genres were at the base of most of the recorded output from a career that went back to the beginning of London's blues scene in 1962. In that year, he joined Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated. Throughout the following decades and into the 21st century, Bruce remained a supreme innovator, pushing...
