JACK BRUCE, ROBIN TROWER & GARY HUSBAND
Germany 2009 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the MusicHall, Worpswede, Germany, March 1, 2009. Very good radio broadcast.

The trio of Jack Bruce, Robin Trower and Gary Husband have been touring consistently since the release of their Seven Moons album in 2008 (apart from Bruce taking some time off after falling ill earlier this year).

One of the reasons behind the enthusiasm is probably the new material on Seven Moons. In an interview posted at getreadytorock.com, Bruce said: “The challenge now is to bring to life the new material written with Robin.

“Well it was Robin’s idea really. He got in touch with the idea of compiling a CD from the two previous albums we had done and I suggested two new songs. He came round to my house and we started writing. It was all very fluid and happened very quickly.”

As for including older classics on their tour, Bruce said: “Now we don’t just want to get into revisiting our respective back catalogues, as this is a different and new project, though there are a few old warhorses from Cream on the live album.

“Well up and until the Cream re-union gig I hadn’t played any of it for quite some time, but at this stage of my career people get pissed off if you don’t. It reminds me some years ago when I went to see Bob Dylan, and he didn’t do anything at all from the past and everyone really got fed up. It’s part of my musical past and really when it comes down to it we are entertainers after all and you don’t want to disappoint your audience.”

In return, one can’t help but notice how Bruce really appreciates his audience.

A relaxed but controlled performance and very good sound make this one of the best shows of the current tour. Thanks to jazzrita for sharing the radio broadcast on the Dime site and to mortengo for the artwork.

  5. I really enjoyed disc 1, dreamy, loose and dark. I downloaded this just to try something different and was rewarded with a very pleasing result. I’m going to give disc 2 a spin manana. Thanks for the post.

    i haven’t seen them and they haven’t played bham since 3.92. it was good, but 1.89 with queensryche was better. both shows were at the bjcc arena where i saw dylan twice, page and plant, fleetwood mac, the boss, kiss twice and a third time coming up 10.24.

  8. Thank you. Bruce and Trower; a perfect combination for listening after the district softball championships in Sturgeon Missouri. It will also be fine with some Octoberfest brew after the Audrain County NRA banquet.
    Thanks again. Is there any old Uriah Heep to be had?
    Have a great day.
