Ginger Baker is one third of Cream.
Yes, that’s reason enough to see him live. Baker’s drumming for the 1960s supergroup was equally propulsive and subtle, the engine that sent Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce into the stratosphere. Like all great artists he made it look easy; the thrill of Fresh Cream or Disraeli Gears sometimes obscured that Baker is a supreme technician who learned at the feet of jazz masters.
Now that he’s survived the past 50 years — a feat few thought possible — Baker has gone back to his roots, forming a ‘formidable’ jazz quartet with jazz/funk master Pee Wee Ellis.
Will you be there?
