a wonderful London show full of passion!,
This review is from: Ginger Bakers Airforce (Audio CD)
This is a truly great show with Traffic members Chris Wood and Stevie Winwood together wih Graham Bond, Rick Grech on bass and fiddle and Phil Seamen on drums.
The spontaneous, live nature of this album is a good reason to listen to it.
The recording quality is not quite up to today's standards, but if, as is elsewhere suggested, the original tapes are lost, the slight distortion of the treble notes at the beginning does indeed suggest that this is recorded from vinyl - 5 minutes into the show however the sound improves.
As with eveything Ginger Baker has created, there is drive, pace and passion with great dramatic moments - a must for anyone interested in jazz rock improvisation!
Great accompaniments to this album would be Ginger Baker's autobiography "Hellraiser" and the DVD "Ginger in Afrika".
