Editorial Reviews

Two legends, one hour of fearsome axe-wielding! They do virtually the entire Seven Moons album plus signature tunes from Bruce's famous catalog, all filmed at the majestic Concertgebouw De Vereeniging in the Netherlands in 5.1 Surround Sound. Tracks include Lives Of Clay; Perfect Place; White Room; Politician and more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Twilight of the Gods November 20, 2009
Format:DVD
Like many, I thought that Robin Trower got back together with Jack Bruce in order to produce a cheap payday capitalizing on past glories. After all, even the song titles were rip-offs of old stuff, right?

Well, I was wrong. Instead of a jaded, pale imitation of what used to be, like most rockers past their prime produce, this is actually a heartening reminder that talent and true greatness stand the test of time. I will readily agree that Trower and Bruce are not going to win any beauty contests these days; it's actually kind of heartbreaking to see how they've aged.

But, DESPITE the ravages of time, Bruce can still produce jewels like "Just Another Day", which is just as good as anything on his masterwork, "Harmony Row". And Robin Trower plays ridiculously well for a sixty-four year old. He plays the Cream classic songs effortlessly, but he really shines on the new stuff like "Seven Moons", "So Far to Yesterday", and "The Last Door".

In the final analysis, there aren't that many rock musicians that you can classify as "significantly creative artists". But these are two such musicians, from a generation that lifted rock music toward respectability.

Look at the people Bruce has worked with: John McLaughlin, Tony Williams, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Chris Spedding, Gary Moore, Carla Bley, Frank Zappa. Jack has the kind of musical intelligence that transcends genres. Trower has the flowing style of soloing that can remind you of a jazz saxophonist, and he is never anything less than tasteful.

So my advice is to get past the wrinkles, and enjoy the music. Jazz player Roland Kirk kept playing after debilitating strokes. Johnny Cash still commanded respect when he was frail of health.

Just be glad that these guys are still around, still creative, still sharing their gifts. What they're doing, in the face of a music industry that only loves pretty faces, is nothing short of HEROIC.

ALERT!!!The previous review is just absurd! 2 stars?! Why bother giving two? What are those 2 for anyway?...These guys have always been about subtelty, not bombast! The songs are intended to be minimalist in structure. Can you not see and hear how into it they are??? To say Jack Bruce's vocals are "weak" is also bizarre. "CARMEN" is amazing vocally!! Who pray-tell would sing this any better?..Jack Bruce is incredible! He is pitch-perfect. Gary Husband is an amazing drummer and a wonderful choice here.(talk about the details! GREAT IS A DRUMMER WHO CAN DEAL WITH MINIMALISM WHILE MAINTAINING SUCH DYNAMICS! If you are a Trower, or Jack Bruce fan this is a must!

The only reason this gets 4 stars is because I find the guitar a bit low/dry/ & subdued in the mix. It's unusually clean and may be just the way the DVD/performance was recorded. Usually Trower's guitar is right on the edge of feedback. So, I would liked to have seen the mix a tad more vibrant, louder, especially on the guitar & bass side. Having said that, recording a live performance DVD is tricky thing. There are allot of "funny things" going on in the post- production stage of supposedly live DVD's these days, and this one, while being a bit "dry", is refreshingly true to the performance. Nice camera work and angles. Good lighting as well!

Unfortunately, there are no "extras" on this dvd which is a shame. Would love to have seen some interviews! So 4 stars for lack of extras.. and a bit too dry mix-wise. The performances are killer! 5 STARS FOR PERFORMANCE!

How can anyone not be happy to have this? Trower never was a big commercial success and to have a DVD with Jack Bruce at all is a total gift!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Shine of Seven Moons November 7, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jack Bruces' style and panache persuaded me to take up bass in 1974. I've followed his performances since the "How's Tricks" tour and own most of his releases, on vinyl,CD and VHS. In my opinion the "Seven Moons" CD is his best recorded performance, with inciteful lyrics, a smooth,fat bass sound and perfect production. While I would have preferred to see this band live, I was relieved to hear it would be released on DVD.

I find Robin Trowers' music somewhat hypnotic having seen him twice in the last few years but playing with Jack Bruce causes him to "take it up a notch". Their two previous collaborations "BLT" and "Truce" were entertaining.He was obviously having fun here!

Gary Husband is one of the most lyrical drummers playing today.

The sound is quite good,as is the camera work.I wish they had kept to their shared work rather than including Cream tunes. The only reason I couldn't give this DVD 5 stars is that Mr. Bruce is really showing his age. The passion is still there but the fire doesn't burn as brightly. I can understand his possible inability to tour extensively. Sadly this fate awaits us all, and should remind us to ejoy all we can while we can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Three First Rate Musicians In A First Rate Performance January 18, 2011
Format:DVD
This DVD is a live 2009 concert with Jack Bruce, Robin Trower and drummer Gary Husband performing the material on the studio version of Bruce & Trower's Seven Moons CD, along with some material from Jack Bruce's days with Cream.

Great stuff. This performance ranks alongside the best material Jack Bruce and Robin Trower have done individually and collectively over the decades.

There's nothing fancy about the performance. There are no ostentatious theatrics or staging. This is just three first rate musicians performing some great new material along with covers of Politician and Sunshine of Your Love, both Jack Bruce compositions from his days with Cream.

My only criticism of this album is that I would have liked to hear this band cover some of the early Robin Trower classics like Day of the Eagle and Too Rolling Stoned along with the covers of Cream material.

But that's a really minor issue.

For fans of Cream and of Robin Trower, you won't be disappointed with this DVD. I highly recommend it.

I like Bruce/Trower (Trower/Buce?) projects because you get Trower songs with Jack Bruce bass/vocals, and you get Bruce songs with Trower guitar. It's a win-win. Read more
