Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Jack Bruce always associated with blues-rock music, I think the reason is his short but successful work in Cream. All later career goes in the shadow of that name, and it is a big mistake.

Starting from very first solo albums in late sixties, Bruce showed much more, than blues-rock in his music. In his "Song For A Tailor" he demonstrates full range of different musical styles, and jazz-rock and fusion are between them.

His unregular album releases and changes in style slowly bring him in the shade.

Before now, last time I was interested with his job when listening BBM (BakerBruceMoore) release, but it was real blues -rock work.

And now - when I found this Sanctuary release in a sale, I was wandered if he has so fresh work. For small money I bought it just to see, what happens with legend on his pension, and ... And I was almost shocked!

Perfect album, I'm serious! I listen it again and again and found more and more what I like in it!

OK, bluesy roots are there as well, what are you expecting from one-time Cream star? But - plenty of styles as well. Most important , there are REAL MUSIC, and it is rare bird in nowadays.

Melancholic "The Night That Once Was Mine" sounds as Bacardi Coctail with it's bass pulsation and Latin drums. "Milonga Too" continues the same melodic and rhytmic line. Warm sound just slowly filling your space and your head.

But the album is far from comfort listening in your bungalo during summer holiday. "Politician" is a song with lyrics, nervous scratching bass pulsation and african drumming. Yes, doomy guitar sound gave it some psychodelic feel, but arrangment is more fusion than blues.

Old fashioned acoustic piano in "We're Going Wrong" ballad bring us somewhere in fifties, but is not immitation, it's work of master. It's no prog at all, but real good music.

All in all , it's a work of big master, and one of realy strong albums during some last years. The music style I can name as "prog related", with some very professional and interesting bass lines and unusal african and Latin drums. According to it's common atmosphere, the album is somewhere near to David Gilmour's "On The Island". But from them both I prefer " More Jack Than God".
