Both 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:
