Jack Bruce & Robin Trower

bluesmagazine.nl: "After two gigs in Karlsruhe and Cologne the trio was ready to play the Dutch city of Nijmegen, where the concert was recorded. And indeed, this night was very special. Not because of the camera crew and the recording, but because Trower, Bruce and Husband had already formed a whole. They knew, they belonged here.

It´s 08:45 pm. The place: The old, majestic Concertgebouw De Vereeniging. Jack Bruce welcomes the audience and the band kicks off with the title track of Seven Moons. Four minutes later we hear Trower’s first solo. One can see that Bruce is elated by it. The next song is the bluesy “Lives Of Clay”. Bruce comments: “Now we are beginning to get somewhere.”

 

 

They play almost the complete Seven Moons album and also the track “Carmen” of their 1981 record B.L.T. And of course songs of Bruce’s famous catalogue from his time with Cream that cannot be left out: “Sunshine Of Your Love”, the song with the legendary bass riff, “White Room” that shows why Trower is called the “white Hendrix” in the States and the bonus track “Politician.”

The pleasure the guys had on stage makes this CD/DVD set a unique piece of rock music. Jack Bruce who died last autumn but had already suffered several strokes of fate at the time of the recording said during the show: “It is fantastic to be here. For me personally, it is fantastic to be anywhere, actually…”
