The masterful "Horses & Trees" remastered & renamed,
This review is from: Dust To Dust (Audio CD)
This is a 2006 remastering of Gingers 1987 classic world music album Horses & Trees, and the only way to buy it cheaply now.
After Cream Baker has had an output as variable as his personal ups and downs, with some decidely 2nd rate rock money raising ventures ( Baker Gurvitz, Energy, Hawkwind and even the dreary Blind Faith) But he has produced 3 influential musical collaborations that match the legendary drumming skills and his influential music with Cream and Graham Bond in the 60s.
In the 1970s he played with Fela Kuti on 3 albums (Live, Why Black Men Suffer & He Miss Road) for which he was slated by the music press, but which can now be seen as a key step in the acceptance of Afro Beat music to a worldwide audience.
In the 90s he formed a brilliant Neo-fusion jazz trio with Bill Frisell & Charlie Haden on the albums Goin Back Home & Falling Off the Roof.
The album Dust to Dust is a well remastered re-issue of his great 80s collaboration with New York left field world music maestro Bill Laswell. The collaboration also produced the albums Middle Passage and Material Live in Japan.
All of the above are worth seeking out to show that Baker could still produce groundbreaking, high quality music between Creams demise in 1968 and its reunion in 2005.
