Baker, Ginger - Live in London 2009 CD + DVD (special)
23-Floating World FW 6091
An informal live show with Ginger (still sounding great on his 70th birthday, Chris Goss (guitar), Abbas Dodoo (percussion), Pete King (alto sax) and Jonas Hellborg (bass).
"Where as many Voiceprint releases are only legal 'bootlegs' with medium soundquality this is an absolutely pro product. Clear multitrack sound!
The concert was held to celebrate Ginger's 70 year birthday- quite a miraculous event considering his life style - and cast a stellar band with Chris Goss (Masters Of Reality)and bass virtuoso Jonas Hellborg. The repertoire is kind of a historic trip through G.B.'s illustrious career. Be-bop with Thelonious Monk and "Bemsha Swing" with a brilliant Hellborg solo. Cream: a rather short run through of "Sweet Wine" with some less than stellar vocals from Goss and Baker's daughter Leda, "Iko Beiya" from Airforce. The playing is rather tight for an ad hoc band and it's a great pleasure to hear Jonas H. play some straight rock and blues."-Bodhi Heeren
