Event description

Description

“Gifted with immense talent, Ginger Baker combined jazz training with a powerful polyrhythmic style in the world’s first, and best, power trio - Cream.” - Rolling Stone Magazine
The legendary Ginger Baker, one of the worlds most famous and notorious drummers, comes to Boisdale to perform with his all star band Jazz Confusion. Widely known as rock's first superstar drummer, Ginger Baker rose to fame alongside Eric Clapton as the co-founder of multi-plantinum selling band Cream.

Later a fascination with the music of Africa led Baker to Nigeria, where he developed a close friendship with Afrobeat icon Fela Kuti, recording and performing with him for many years. This long time fascination with African drumming led to Ginger’s collaboration with Ghanian conga maestro Abass Doddo – a member of Jazz Confusion who will feature alongside Baker on the night. Other members of Jazz Confusion are the brilliant jazz bassist Alec Dankworth and world renowned sax player “Pee Wee” Ellis, famous for his long association with James Brown – all star musicians in their own right, who combine with Baker's flamboyant drumming style to stage a truly spectacular and memorable show.

The audience will also get the chance to ask questions in a post performance Q&A, adding a personal touch to what is set to be a very special event.
