Multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Jack Bruce started his professional journey in 1962, as a bass player on the London blues scene. The Scotsman honed his skills alongside Alexis Korner, Graham Bond, and John Mayall. In 1966, he formed seminal blues-rock trio Cream with guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker. When the band split up two years later, Bruce opened up his musical horizons by trying his hand at pop, jazz, and classical music. Over the years, he has spearheaded countless solo projects, led several bands, and acted as sideman for a host of artists. Ever prolific and active, the musician has kept busy touring and recording in the last decades. The year 2012 saw him celebrate his 50th anniversary in the business.
