Exclusive Screening & Celebrity Q&A at Curzon Mayfair
On the first anniversary of Jack Bruce’s passing, a star-studded line up of world class musicians performed a moving musical tribute to the Scottish legend at The Roundhouse in London. The tribute concert, musically directed by Nitin Sawhney, featured Jack’s Cream bandmate Ginger Baker, Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, Joss Stone, Level 42’s Mark King, Living Colour’s Vernon Reid, Uli Jon Roth, Hugh Cornwell and many more. This incredible line-up delighted the capacity audience with a stunning selection of Bruce’s songs spanning his entire career, from the pre-Cream days to his final album Silver Rails. “I felt deeply honoured when Natasha and Margrit asked me to musically direct this wonderful tribute show to Jack Bruce’s fantastic body of work,” said Nitin Sawhney. “Directing such a range of musical legends, who all came together to reproduce and perform the highlights of Jack’s work, was an enormously inspirational experience.
The tribute concert was recorded for posterity and will receive its debut screening in the luxurious surroundings of the Curzon Mayfair on 14th May 2018. This is a particularly auspicious date, as it would have marked Jack’s 75th Birthday. The screening will be followed by a Q&A hosted by Edith Bowman. This will offer audience members a unique opportunity to quiz many of the original tribute’s contributors, including music director Nitin Sawhney, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Mark King and members of Bruce’s family, about this wonderful concert. “I was thrilled to perform at the memorial concert for dear Jack,” said Mark King. “It gave me the chance to say ‘thank you’ for a lifetime’s inspiration, and I am so glad that those who couldn’t be there can now share the love that we all have for this truly great musician. And those who were lucky enough to be there in person will now be able to experience that wonderful night all over again!” A very limited number of VIP tickets are on sale via: https://www.musicglue.com/noise-merch/ All profits will go to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices who were also the beneficiaries of the original tribute concert, which raised over £35,000.
