RIP Jack Bruce…an awesome bass player and composer who’s performed with some of the greats…from the early groups Alexis Korner’s Blues Inc. and Graham Bond Organisation, to the supergroup Cream with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker, and far beyond that.
His many other projects include collaborations with Gary Moore, Robin Trower, John Mcaughlin, Leslie West, Tony Williams, Corky Laing, Carla Bley, and Ringo Starr’s All Star Band, as well as his own big blues band. Jack Bruce also worked as a session man with Lou Reed on Berlin and Frank Zappa, with whom he co-wrote Apostrophe.
Jack’s released thirty solo albums, including live festival sets and video…his latest release is entitled Silver Rails and features Phil Manzanera and Robin Trower on guitars.
His website jackbruce.com lists very touching tributes to Jack Bruce the man, husband, musician, songwriter and friend.
