Sunshine of Your Love is a tribute concert to the late Jack Bruce, one of the finest musicians of his generation and sadly missed. The concert at the Roundhouse is in aid of Jack’s favourite charity, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
Artists confirmed so far: Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Vernon Reid, Mark King, Liam Bailey, Fiona Bevan and Jack Bruce’s Big Blues Band. Further additions and special guests yet to be announced. Musical Director, Nitin Sawhney has said:
“Jack Bruce was one of my biggest heroes when I was growing up – a consummate musician, composer and all round rock genius with a killer voice and one of the most creative and versatile musical minds of his generation. Being asked to musically direct this show celebrating his life and work is a great honour and privilege and I look forward to working with an amazing line up of contemporary artists and rock legends.”
Jack Bruce was a music colossus with a restless musical spirit. His 50-year career saw him work with a wide range of collaborators, across many genres. He was respected by all for his inventiveness and instrumental dexterity. He composed some of the greatest songs of the 20th Century including: White Room, I Feel Free, Sunshine Of Your Love, and Theme For An Imaginary Western. His last album was _Silver Rail_s, released in March 2014 and recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
