Product Description

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!

Amazon.com

"Ain’t got time to waste / Keep thinking about the future," Jack Bruce wails in "Lives of Clay." On the second track of his forceful, album-length alliance with guitarist Robin Trower, Bruce’s signature bass lines chug beneath the blues-powered lead guitar. The duo sounds as if ready to break out, rather than the legendary veterans of more than four decades in the business. Long-time jazz and rock session drummer Gary Husband completes the trio for these live-in-studio sessions, which showcase the genius of Bruce and Trower equally and collaboratively. Trower’s Hendrix-style fingering leads the relentless title track, and his bluesy romps power the slower ballads, especially the shadowy "Distant Places of the Heart" and "Bad Case of Celebrity," a bluesy romp through the heart of pop idolism. As for Bruce, you wonder where 40 years have gone since Cream closed it down at the Royal Albert Hall. His familiar blues-based, bass-driven melodies chauffeur the album’s rockers, notably "Lives of Clay," "She’s Not the One," and the superlative "The Last Door." On this, he announces: "We came to search for what was lost." Clearly, they found what they were looking for. --Scott Holter

I come to this release as a Jack Bruce fan. The previous collaborations of Trower/Bruce never did appeal to me all that much. They seemed drained of energy and Jack's bass seems to be buried too much in the mix. By contrast, when you look at, say, West, Bruce and Laing, the bass was recorded front and center and the album, although very uneven, had an incredible intensity and energy. The other obvious example was the song, Life on Earth. Done with Trower, it was a mid-tempo, undistinguished effort. When Bruce later recorded it for a solo album. it nearly exploded with vitality.

So, I was keeping my expectations low. And - wow! Was I pleasantly surprised to hear Seven Moons. First of all, unlike the other two efforts, this seems like a real collaboration, not like a Trower album with a little assist from Bruce. The bass is still too deep in the mix, and a bit mushy, but at least you can hear it - and it provides some memorable riffs. The best revelation of all is Bruce's vocal - which is a great mixture of power and warmth. Too often, in recent years, he has had a tendency to sound shrill and strained. Not so here. Just straight forward, warm, expressive.

Just Another Day and I'm Home seem to be about the emotional dislocation of (barely) surviving a deadly illness. And on these songs, especially, Bruce's vocals are simply stunning in his evocation of yearning and dread.

And, hey, Trower's playing is really wonderful, thorughout. Great tone. Still highly inventive and in its own way, a great, emotive voice. I'm not sure who else is really playing guitar this well, these days. It's a short list, that's for sure.

Gary Husband brings it all together on drums. He has been playing with Bruce for years now and it shows.

I've heard the "Truce" album as well as the "BLT," and this is by far the best collaboration between Trower and Jack Bruce. His bass playing is still incredible, and he sounds wonderful on this "Seven Moons" CD.

Robin as usual is fantastic on guitar, but that's because he's one of the best, and I don't care what other people or critics have to say about him, he's in the same league and even better than some of the most famous guitarists ever, including Hendrix, Beck, Page, Clapton, you name them, Robin is right there with the best of them, but the sad thing is he's never got the recognition he deserves.

This is a great CD, not one bad track on it, and if you're a fan of Trower and Jack Bruce, I recommend you get it. It's much better than I had anticipated, and I'm very glad to have purchased it without ever hearing one complete song on it.

It heartens me to see the large number of reviews written for Seven Moons in the relatively short time since its release. Several years ago, Robin Trower mulled retirement from the recording studio. Since that time, he has issued three fine CDs (including this one), an excellent DVD and is currently in the middle of a successful concert tour. So by all appearances, he is back. And from the sound of this album, so is Jack Bruce.
Trower's sound is so unmistakable, you know you are hearing him play from the very first note. Ditto for the voice of Jack Bruce who has lost little since the glory days of Cream. Trower and Bruce were once teamed up in the past, and although I don't think Seven Moons is quite as strong as Trower's last outing, it is very much superior to this duo's last collaboration.
It took a couple of listens for this to grow on me and convince me that Bruce's voice is a near-perfect complement to Trower's guitar as it sizzles, stings, and growls its way through this fine selection of eleven originals. Trower shows his maturity in the way he plays. He feels no need to show off, but rather makes every note count with a subdued and tightly controlled approach to his music.
Though I generally like the whole CD, I find some songs to be outstanding. The best, in my opinion, are: the bluesy Lives of Clay, the rocking So Far to Yesterday, the driving, pounding The Last Door, and the sizzling Come To Me.
Those fans who like having the lyrics included in a booklet will find them instead printed inside the CD's tri-fold packaging.
Some say that Seven Moons will be best appreciated by those who were fans of Procol Harum and Cream. There may be some truth in that. But I think it will be appreciated as well by any lover of blues rock who gets the opportunity to hear it. Try it out, you should not be disappointed.

This is the third album from these two legends. Jack of course the man who singlehandedly revolutionized the electric bass as the mastermind and creative force behind one of the greatest bands ever: Cream. Whereas Robin graced the first five classic Procol Harum albums with some fiery, melodic guitar, before he had a revelation hearing Jimi Hendrix, which changed his playingstyle forever. So it's not surprising that this album really is 'Cream meets Hendrix' psychedelic blues at its finest.

It was painfully obvious at the otherwise historic and wonderful Cream-reunion shows in 2005 that Jack -due to cancer and a near-fatal livertransplant - was only a shadow of himself, esecially as vocalist, although he certainly put in a marvelous effort. But here his expressive, emotional and golden voice is back. And his bassplaying solid, inventive and inspired.

Robin shows that few others have grasped not only the sound and tone but also the spirit of Hendrix as deeply and profound as he. The drummer in this powertrio is the brilliant Gary Husband, a long time Bruce-collaborator, who has also played with Allan Holdsworth and John McLaughlin, and here he shines on every track with classic triorockdrumming, rather Mitch Mitchell-like.

The album is more or less recorded live in the studio, the vibes deep and spontaneous. The songs, all written by Bruce and Trower, great. The lyrics for the most part philosophical and spiritual with lines like: "Wanna stay where the light is streaming/ Find the one who's dreaming me".

A must for everyone into psychedelic rock and pure uncommercial, uncompromising MUSIC.
