Jeff Berlin Pledges For A Jack Bruce Tribute

Jeff Berlin and Jack BruceBoth bass legends and brothers in arms, Jeff Berlin and the great late Jack Bruce were friends, and now the former is to pay a homage to the latter with a special project. “Songs For A Wailer!” that will see many guests – including the already confirmed drummers Ginger Baker and Chad Smith, Allan Holdsworth on guitar and Paul Shaffer on Hammond – will focus on Jack’s magical solo material, with a couple of CREAM tunes thrown in for good measure. Of course, given the players’ inclination, there’ll be a fusion slant to the result that would satisfy Bruce, famously a jazz buff himself. So a treat is guaranteed. The campaign, with all its perks, can be accessed here.

And here’s a video for the project:
