The legendary Ginger Baker made his big break as a the inspirational drummer and founder of Cream. Ginger played in Cream from 1966 until they disbanded in 1968. In 1970 Baker formed, toured and recorded with fusion rock group Ginger Baker’s Air Force.
Ginger then formed and recorded with Ginger Baker’s Energy and was involved in collaborations with Bill Laswell, jazz bassist Charlie Haden and jazz guitarist Bill Frisell. He was also a member of Hawkwind, Atomic Rooster and Public Image Ltd, and sat in for Fela Kuti, during recording sessions in 1971, which were then released as Live ! (with Ginger Baker).
In 1994 he joined BBM, a short-lived power trio with the lineup of himself, Jack Bruce and Irish rock blues guitarist Gary Moore. On 3 May 2005, Baker was reunited with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce, for a series of concerts at the Royal Albert Hall and Madison Square Garden New York.
Joining him will be young jazz quintet PYJÆN, who blend traditional jazz, bebop and swing with modern-day contemporary jazz and harmony, to create an advanced, new sound to the world.
