Album Review

Legendary Cream bassist Jack Bruce celebrates his fiftieth birthday by jamming with a few friends. The second track ("Over The Cliff" ), a three-way instrumental pull between Bruce, Cream power drummer Ginger Baker and Dick Heckstall-Smith on sax, is worth the price of admission. As a rule, the instruments and mean solos come through loud and clear but the vocals often seem more thin. Another highlight is Jack tackling Buddy Guy's "First Time I Met The Blues" adding guitarist Clem Clempson to the trio that just whipped out "Over The Cliff." The Cream rhythm section works out on Howlin' Wolf's "Sittin' On Top of the World" with guitarist Gary Moore. But, check out the following track when Pete Brown helps out for "Politician" then leaves them to take care of Willie Dixon's "Spoonful." For the last cut, everyone jams together on "Sunshine of Your Love."

this is a small version of the 2 CD live set done in Germany in honor of Jack's 50th birthday. It features some phenomenal performers playing powerful versions of some of his (and Cream's) better known songs. Ginger Baker, Gary Moore and others less famous here, but equally adept. Jack's playing is as creative as ever, even if his voice sounds just a bit thin. Highly recommended, unless, of course, you can still find, Deserted Cities of the Heart, the original 2 CD set.

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...
