Ginger Baker's Jazz Confusion
"Beware of Mr. Baker" or not, this should be a lively percussion-focused run, at least if the former Cream drummer holds up. Baker, who still exudes rock-star attitude as well as considerable Afrobeat mojo, leads a quartet consisting of the powerful saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, bassist Alec Dankworth, and percussionist Abass Dodoo. Expect to hear tunes by Rollins, Monk, Haden, Ellis, and Shorter in the mix.
