  • Jack bruce

    Can anyone recommend any Jack Bruce that is funky? I've heard there are some decent tracks, but every time I've had a skip through an album I've always been disappointed. I know he's respected in jazz circles, but personally I've always found it a tad dull (from a dancefloor perspective, if that doesn't sound like a heretical statement).

    And while we're at it, what about the other guys from Cream: Ginge and 'God' (aka Racist Git). I've got a few nice things of Ginger's including his stuff with Fela and Eric Clapton's version of I Shot The Sheriff is a blinding dancefloor tune. Any others I should know about?

      What he said. The Bruce albums that I've heard are standard Be Bop.

        does anyone know if jack's late 80s/early 90s solo LP is remotely funky? i had it on tape years ago and seem to remember there being maybe one track that was ok, but haven't heard it in years...

          yeah , the albums are pretty much Standard Jazz. However, "Things we Like" is chocked full of classic hip hop damnples that were used by Diamond D and others

              Ok, that's a relief. I though everyone was hearing something I didn't.

              So what about Eric and Ginger, then? My fave Ginger track is his version of Don't Stop The Carnival.

                    Picked up these 2 in a charity shop recently:

                    Jack Bruce/Harmony Row. Nothing funky, in fact nothing god at all!

                    The Jack Bruce Band/HowÂ’s Tricks. Again awful

                    I have ‘Things I like’ and that’s rather awful too!

                    IÂ’m staying clear of Mr Bruce in the future.

                      Ditto.I just can't get a handle on Things We Like.

                      Also , I'm reminded of my 'getting into proper music' of my youth when I heard 'Toad' off 'Live Cream' - a 15 minute drum solo no less.Just enough time for Jack and Eric to nip out for a meal and a couple of jars    
                      Back to Neuuuuuuuuuu!

                        Exactly? It's not even like the samples are that prominent either if your a sample spotter. They're small little blips in otherwise straight Bop songs.

                          I've got a 2LP called "Ginger Baker's Flying Circus" or something ridiculous like that... recorded live and from memory it has a couple of bangers.

                            I think you may be confusing Monty Python with Ginger Baker. Not, from what I hear of Ginger's irascible persinality, an easy thing to do. Is it a double LP by Airforce that you're thinking of? I think it has a good version of Sunshine Of Your Love.

                              "Songs for a Tailor" is OK, by the way - couple of good tunes - don't want to totally "diss" the fellow.
