Four Forty One Will Vinson. I originally bought this album when I was a Jack Bruce fan - not a jazz enthusiast. I've since become one and it makes me appreciate this release all the more. By Studebacher Hoch.
I did not know such a gem existed until this year And i am an real fan of old stuff by McLaughlin. How this escaped my attention is beyond me.
JMcG is only on a couple songs here. The playing is competent but other then HCKHH blues, I don't think the album is all that interesting other than for its novelty value. If you like it, then check out John McGlaughlin's "Extrapolation" a very similar-sounding album with the same instrumentation, but more guitar. Odd that Jack's first solo album would be jazz. He's classically trained as a cellist. His next solo efforts would be rock albums. He never repeated this little experiment.
I suppose he was extending the work he used to do with Graham Bond Organization with Ginger Baker pre-Cream, which was jazz-influenced for sure.
I was blown away by this album when it came out, and am thrilled by its release at last on CD. It easily rivals anything by the jazz stars of then or now. Things We Like features creative, skilled playing by all, and wonderfully novel compositions by Bruce--not the usual post-bop noodlings.

It has always struck me that Jack Bruce was far more of a musician than a mere rock bassist. Of course, in that genre he was outstanding but, essentially, he always seemed over-qualified for the Cream gig. At heart he was a composer with a taste, and gift, for improvisation, despite his training as a classical cellist.
So, with both his musical fluency and quest for freedom both absolute givens, it is inevitable that he should have turned to jazz.Discover releases, reviews, track listings, recommendations, and more about Jack Bruce With John McLaughlin, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Jon Hiseman - Things We Like at Discogs.
