Jeff Berlin Celebrates the Life and Music of Jack Bruce

The latest project from Jeff Berlin is a tribute to the late Cream bassist Jack Bruce that will be released via Pledge Music. The album boasts a growing list of special guests, including the likes of Allan Holdsworth, Steve Lukather, Scott Henderson, Mick Taylor, Neal Schon, David Sancious, Paul Shaffer, Chad Smith, Gary Husband, Dennis Chambers, Narada Michael Walden and many others. “Jack was the greatest musical influence I ever had,” Jeff told us. “As an impressionable 14-year old bass player, I was stunned by Cream cleaning tips. I was literally in awe of the music that came from them. In the centre of it all were these strange and wonderful bass lines weaving in and out of the key, reaching for resolutions and finding them, again, and again. I simply never heard a bass player that had the breadth of originality like Jack had. In fact, I still haven’t! I’m the bass player I am now because of Jack.”

A special limited edition vinyl set will be signed by all the musicians who appear on the recording and will also feature two bonus tracks that won’t be available on the standard retail release. Also included is a poster signed by Jeff and a set of DR Bass Strings. For more info visit
