The Bass Master Sings SOLO,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Question of Time (Audio CD)
People are sometimes confused by Jacks solo career after Cream. They should not be his dozen TRUE SOLO albums from 1969 Songs for a Tailor to 2003 More Jack than God are totally consistent. Brilliant Songs written with Master Wordsmith Pete Brown, world class musicians and of course that famous voice and bass.
The Confusion has arisen with his Non Solo collaborative works which cover everything from Free Jazz, the avant garde to Hard Rock. Although they have their moments of genius to,these are really for the devotees. Anything with Jacks name alone on the sleeve is a true gem.
This one dates from 1989 and reunites him with Ginger Baker on two tracks. Alan Holdsworth, Bernie Worrell, Tony Williams, Vernon Reid & Albert Collins are among the luminaries on this album. Slightly more U.S. radio friendly (it was recorded at Electric Ladyland Studios) than previous solo efforts, it features the myriad of chord changes and rythmns we expect fom Jack. Life on Earth, Make Love, No Surrender, Obsession would grace any rock album ever! Another Solo Masterpiece.
Get them all: Songs for a tailor,Harmony Row,Out of the Storm,Hows Tricks, I've always wanted to do this, Automatic, Somethin' Els, Deserted Cities Live,Monkjack, Shadows in the Air & More Jack than God. The quality control NEVER slips.
