Live In Berlin, Germany 1978 (CD)
Ginger Baker is probably best known as the drummer with British rock band Cream and also Blind Faith. Ginger's next musical stop, after Cream and Blind Faith, was his own band Ginger Baker's Airforce who released two albums of part studio part live recordings. Following the breakup of airforce in early 1971 Ginger moved to Africa and built his own recording studio in Nigeria. At this point musically however Ginger was incredibly prolific working with Fela Ransome Kuti and also his own band Salt. He also recorded his own solo album Stratavarious. In 1974 Ginger returned to rock music with the Baker Gurvitz Army who over the next two years produced three studio albums and toured extensively. In November 1978 after a short period setting up his own Polo Club (something that still interests Ginger to this day) Ginger found himself in Berlin for a concert with his old friend Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Africa 70 at the Berlin Jazzfest. The two tracks contained on this album are a magnificent blend of styles and one which went down exceedingly well with the audience although best described as a jam the music is never boring or self indulgent. This high quality recording is a fine testament to the pairing of Fela and Africa 70 and Ginger Baker and captures a real moment in time where the language is music and the currency is virtuosity.
