Vocalist/bass guitarist Jack Bruce secured a place in rock 'n' roll history (and, thus, in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) in the 1960s with the short-lived but groundbreaking power trio Cream with vocalist/guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker.

But Bruce's importance and long-lasting influence does not rest solely on his significant accomplishments with Cream. After Cream, he embarked on a solo career in which he further explored the boundaries of rock, jazz and blues.

He often performed with other legends, and Classic Pictures' new DVD 'Jack Bruce and Friends - Live' -- the title's first-ever release on home video -- preserves just such a concert recorded on October 18, 1980, at the Rockaplast in Essen, Germany. 'Jack Bruce and Friends - Live' is being released in North America and the DVD is mastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 sound and features a fully animated menu. DVD extras include a Bruce profile, discography and photo gallery.

Joining Bruce on the 60-minute 'Jack Bruce and Friends - Live' are guitarist Clem Clempson (formerly of blues-rock band Humble Pie), keyboardist David Sancious (formerly of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band) and jazz-rock drummer Billy Cobham (who performed with jazz legends like trumpeter Miles Davis and guitarist John McLaughlin).

The songs on 'Jack Bruce and Friends - Live' include Cream favorites and more: “White Room," “Hit and Run," “Running Back," “Theme for an Imaginary Western," “X Marks the Spot," “Out to Lunch," “Living Without You," “Politician," “Sunshine of Your Love" and “N.S.U."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
