Jack Talks

I never saw this before. I have always admired Jack Bruce as totally open, incredibly talented natural musician. He plays Jazz, but has worked with some of the greatest avant garde composers of our time. Beyond being one of the most influential bass players ever, if you don't know who this guy was, he was the bass player of Cream and the vocalist and bass player on the Manfred Man 60's classic, Pretty Flamingo. He is an incredible keyboard player and composer and a classically trained singer. He has used all of these talents to push the boundaries of music in his own work and as a tool to be used by others. Here. Jack talks about music, plays the classical Indian instrument, the veena, then a grand baroque organ.
