Belated Tribute to Cream bass player, Jack Bruce
Posted: 28th October 2014
I've only just returned from holiday, so apologies for the lateness of this post, about Cream bass player Jack Bruce. As you may know, Jack Bruce died a few days ago, so I thought it only fitting to post a quick note - if you haven't heard his music before you should. Bruce was a fantastic bass player and way ahead of his time. If you listen to a lot of early rock music, the bass player plays only a simple line of root notes, but Jack's playing is a lot more innovative and interesting - he turned the bass into an expressive instrument in its own right. Not to mention that the rest of Cream is pretty sweet too. Eric Clapton's left an acoustic tribute to Jack Bruce, but frankly I think the best tribute is Cream's music, and most especially the album Disraeli Gears:
In case, you are wondering, the title of the album title is a malapropism. You can learn the full story in a great episode of Classic Albums.
