Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, Phil Manzanera and Ian Anderson will pay tribute to Cream bassist Jack Bruce at a special concert benefiting East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH) at London’s Roundhouse on October 24.
Also set to perform are Hugh Cornwell, Bernie Marsden and Uli Jon Roth.
Further additions and special guests are still set to be added to the line up with Nitin Sawhney as musical director.
Sawhney said: “I am very excited about the repertoire chosen by Jack’s wife Margrit and his family. The show will consist of two halves, covering the broad range of Jack’s solo work and his most classic gems with Cream. Each half will build energy in the way that Jack was used to, culminating in an explosive and uplifting conclusion to a wonderful night of Jack’s favourite collaborators, friends and legendary musicians performing his work.”
Jack Bruce was a one-man music powerhouse, his restless musical talent led him to explore a myriad of music styles determined not to be confined by any one genre. The worldwide reaction to his passing was testament to a man who was widely respected and admired as a great musician. He composed some of the greatest songs of the 20th Century including: White Room, I Feel Free, Sunshine Of Your Love, and Theme For An Imaginary Western. His last album was Silver Rails, released in March 2014 and recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
