Jack Bruce, 'Reach for the Night': Song Premiere From Cream Star's First Album in a Decade

Jack Bruce acknowledges that he felt some mild apprehension in making "Silver Rails," his first solo studio album in a decade. But those were quickly allayed once he started putting pen to paper with lyricists such as his wife, Margrit Seyffer, longtime mate Pete Brown and Kip Hanrahan.
"I thought it was going to be really hard to come up with songs that worked and that I like, but it turned out to be very, very natural and I just found it was so easy to write," the former Cream, BLT and West, Bruce & Laing singer-bassist -- last scene as part of the all-star Spectrum Road jazz fusion troupe -- tells Billboard. "I used the (1969 solo debut) album 'Songs For a Tailor' as a template and I kind of listened to that and I based the kind of atmosphere and the feeling of the songs on 'Silver Rails' on that, so it's kind of a bookends, if you like."

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
