Baker's The Man 4/4/18
The legendary Ginger Baker, now 78 years young, returned to his home city last night - albeit North of the Thames for this Lewisham lad. Baker made his big break as a the inspirational drummer and founder of Cream and played with them from 1966 until they disbanded in 1968. Fifty years later Ginger (pictured) was still to be found tubthumping at Camden's Jazz Cafe, a career that has seen him feature in many bands such as Fusion Rock group Ginger Baker’s Air Force, Hawkwind, Atomic Rooster and BBM with Jack Bruce and Gary Moore. Ginger's four-piece Jazz band were supported by young Jazz quintet PYJÆN, who blend Traditional Jazz, Bebop and Swing with modern-day contemporary Jazz and Harmony.
