JACK IS BACK!!! THE PURPLE HAZE ARCHIVE presents ROCK’S GREATEST BASS PLAYER JACK BRUCE: THE SOLO ALBUMS (Show #2) on PODCAST

Jack Bruce, one of the greatest popular musicians Britain has ever produced. A supremely talented instrumentalist and vocalist, eminently respected by his peers, Jack’s pioneering bass playing style has influenced successive generations of bassists, including such luminaries as Paul McCartney, Jaco Pastorius and Sting, alongside more contemporary musicians such as Flea of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. He is also the possessor of one of the most powerful voices in modern music and a composer of some of the most original and influential music of the past forty-five years. As a songwriter he has written some of popular music’s enduring classics such as ‘Sunshine Of Your Love‘, & ‘White Room‘.

Join Jack Bruce on this podcast as he discusses not only his last studio album Silver Rails but all of his 14 solo albums, commencing with his classic “Songs for a Tailor“.

Very sadly, Jack Bruce died October 25, 2014.

  • Cream Fan says:

    A few clarifications on your Jack interview from a Cream Fanatic!
    First: His album “Somethin Els” is actually pronounced “elz”! From Jack Bruce: Composing Himself p.243: “Something Els (1992) was named after a foul-tasting German drink called Els and was the first of three albums Jack would record with CMP.”
    Secondly: from JackBruce.com (http://www.jackbruce.com/2008/Music/solo.htm): Jet Set Jewel was Recorded in 1978 but wasn’t Released until 2003, due to Jack’s Label/contract issues. You said it was released in 1978 multiple times.
    Thirdly: Jack had a faux pas: He said Ginger sold a single to Georgie Fame, when Ginger had actually sold it to The Who, “Waltz for A Pig”. From http://grahambond.org/biography.html: “Since the Who were legally barred from recording until April 4 when the case could be heard, the Graham Bond Organization, credited as the Who Orchestra, was brought in to record a new B-side, “Waltz for a Pig” (the pig referred to Talmy) so that sales of the single could continue.” Also on Jack Bruce Composing Himself p. 84.
    But thanks for the GREAT intervew. Jack usually doesn’t go so far in-depth!
