Bruce, Jack and Friends: Live-DVD

The legendary John Wetton look-and-sing-alike Jack Bruce is the subject of a reconsideration here, Classic Pictures dredging a solid enough German concert vid for re-release. The set is a tribute to good musicianship, Bruce’s sinewy, sensuous voice leading the charge, Jack fronting a group featuring David Sancious on keyboards, Billy Cobham on (busy) drums and Humble Pie’s third guitarist Clem Clempson on de-clawed guitar. Balancing Cream hits with various obscurities, the effect is one of jazzy fusion contrasted with often halting, stomping bass work (see Sunshine Of Your Love). Still, the sound is good, the jams are high concept, and the video, good enough for an ‘80s show at a German club called Rockpalast. Extras include a huge photo gallery, a ten page biography and an extensive discography – solo and otherwise – which allows you to drill down to track listings and album cover shots. An impressive resume to be sure, further drawing comparisons with Wetton as well as John Paul Jones, the three comprising the trinity at the top of the classic rock bassist pyramid.
