Jack Bruce

joined Manfred Mann in 1965 on the recommendation of an old friend of Mike Hugg & Manfred Mann's, Graham Bond, who Jack had played with at an earlier stage in The Graham Bond Organisation along with John McLaughlin, Ginger Baker and latterly, Dick Heckstall-Smith.  (Prior to playing with Graham, Jack had been in Alexis Korner's Blues Inc, with Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones on drums.)  When Mike Vickers left the Manfreds, Jack stepped in to fill the gap, leaving John Mayall's Bluesbreakers to do so.  His arrival meant that Tom McGuinness could move away from playing bass and back to the instrument he felt more at home with, ie lead guitar.  In due course Jack left Manfred Mann to form the legendary Cream with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker.  The band split in 1968 at the height of their popularity and Jack has since recorded numerous solo albums, including the one many regard as his masterpiece, Songs for a Tailor, in 1969, and worked with many different high calibre musicians in a wide variety of genres.
