Ginger Baker Jazz Confusion

Sunday, Jun 29 7:00p
Wilbur Theatre Boston, MA

Legendary drummer Ginger Baker, renowned for his work with Cream and Blind Faith was once voted at "The musician least likely to survive the '60s." But now, 4 decades later, he has proved them all wrong and he is heading to Boston with a new CD titled Why? Teaming up with funk and jazz giant tenor saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, bassist Alec Dankworth and African percussionist Abass Dodoo, they play hip, progressive jazz originals in-a-Thelonious-Monk-style but with exciting African rhythms.
