Best of the Batch: Jack Bruce
More Jack Than God
Artist: Jack Bruce
Title: More Jack Than God
Genre: Rock/Blues, Jazz, World, Progressive
Label: Sanctuary Records-www.sanctuaryrecordsgroup.com
More Jack Than God is a thought provoking title is it not? Jack Bruce is back with another studio effort and it is his finest work in a very long time. Actually, I think the title is easy enough to understand, he is saying that this album is all Jack and he is doing an ego check, he is not a God.
The fact that he has Vernon Reid (Living Colour) playing lead guitar and Bernie Worrell on the Hammond is definite plus for Bruce. The man always surrounds himself with the very best. When one of your first gigs was playing with Eric Clapton, where do you go from there? I think he has chosen his band mates very well over the years.
This album is an utter work of genius combining rock, blues, jazz and world influences for a tastefully well-done smorgasbord of music. Even the rehashed "I Feel Free" and "Politician" sound sparkly new and refreshing. The best track is the curtain closer "Lost in the City (Jam Mix)," it is a flat out rockin' progressive-blues-rock workout. Surely, its one of the best tracks I have ever heard from Bruce. His voice sounds great, and although it has mellowed with age, he is a master at enunciating and putting proper emphasis on key words in a song.
Jack Bruce has proven once again (as if he had to) that he is unequivocally one of the best bass players on earth, easily in the top five of active recording artists in the world today.
