Still delivering after all these years,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Silver Rails (Audio CD)
Although best known for his stint with the legendary powertrio Cream perhaps Jack Bruce's strongest time was in the first half of the 70s. Producing an unsurpassed trilogy of strong solo-albums ("Songs For A Tailor", "Harmony Row", "Out Of The Storm") and playing on groundbreaking albums like Carla Bley's "Escalator Over The Hill" and "Turn It Over" (Tony William's Lifetime).
Since those golden days Jack has certainly continued making music of the highest calliber without quite reaching the same heights. So it's nice to be able to say that here at 70 he has made a strong musical statement, despite some serious health problems due to a near fatal liver transplantant in 2003.
Jack has always been a restless soul and a true multitasking musician. Not only a groundbreaking bass virtuoso but also an excellent keyboardplayer. And having one of the finest voices in contemporary music. A searching musical mind mastering almost all genres from avantgarde to heavy rock. True to form with "Silver Rails" he has made yet another diverse outing, helped by friends like Uli Jon Roth, Robin Trower, Cindy Blackman Santana, John Medeski a.m.o.. And reunited with long time partner lyricist Pete Brown. An album consisting of 8 new tracks of ususal high standard plus to 'oldies': "Keep It Down" ("Out Of The Storm") and "No Surrender" ("A Question Of Time").
How time will judge this album compared to the masterworks of his younger days who knows? But he certainly shows - like recent releases from Paul McCartney, David Crosby, John McLaughlin - that there is indeed life and creativity after 70.
