"Recording the music of Jack Bruce is much more to me than a project of love. It is maybe the most emotional recording project of my career. As a kid of 14, Cream utterly changed my life. Those live performances fit exactly with my budding interest in becoming a bass player. And Jack’s bass playing was astonishing. It was loud, in your face, and utterly musical. His bass playing kicked me in the gut and put me on the musical path I have pursued since those innocent days when I worshipped his playing, the only bass god that I ever had in my life.
Jack also had a solo career where his songs were as compelling as the tunes that he wrote for Cream, maybe even more so. Jack’s solo career wasn’t confined to a guitar trio. He used horns, Hammond organ, jazz drummers, blues guitarists, fusion musicians, classical string sections, vocal chorus sections and Latin percussion. And always in the dead center of those quirky songs was that VOICE! If his compositional skills and his multi instrumental ability weren’t enough, Jack had a voice that was simply like no other. The range was tenor. The sound was Scottish soul and it wailed and wept. And it touched my heart.
When Jack died, my first thought was to honor his memory and record a CD of some of my favorite Bruce songs. We talked for years about recording a CD together, but sadly, time waits for no one. This CD will not be covers. I’ve arranged every song with fresh interpretations making sure that each song retained the original spirit that Jack included in every tune he wrote. This CD, to me, will be one of the freshest revamps of some of the best music that I heard from one of the greatest musicians of the last forty years.
Come celebrate Jack’s life with us and help us make this a reality. Thanks!"
Jeff Berlin
