JACK BRUCE : Things We Like (1970)

Excellent solo album (post Cream) from the master bassist Jack Bruce. Here he interestingly goes back to his  Jazz roots playing Double Bass and is backed by some great sidemen : John McLaughlin (Miles Davis / Bitches Brew), plus Coliseum's Hiseman & Heckstall - Smith. (This was recorded in 1968 though unreleased until the Autumn of 1970). Love to hear people's thoughts on this album...
