Jack Bruce - Harmony Row download mp3 album
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). I find Jack Bruce to be one of the most underrated musicians of his generation. This album shows us why. After the initial efforts with Songs For A Taylor and Things We Like, Jack produced Harmony Row, what I consider his finest work. There were very few flashes of the brilliance in composition and songwriting from what came after. He basically took what he started with on his solo debut, keeping some of the collaborators like lyricist Peter Brown and guitarist Chris Spedding, and took it further afield.
2. Escape To The Royal Wood (On Ice). Harmony Row (LP, Album, Gat). 2383 065. Jack Bruce.
Harmony Row is the legitimate follow-up to Jack Bruce'excellent songs for a tailor, although 1971 also saw the almost-simultaneous release of 1968 jazz tapes entitled Things We Like by this artist. An elaborate gatefold package has a shadow photo of the artist from the back, overlooking a golden sun on the waters. The self-produced disc begins with the pop excursion "Can You Follow," which blends into "Escape To The Royal Wood (On Ice). Harmony Row is the album that combines many flavors of Bruce's experimentations, making it courageous, adventurous, and hardly the product for a mass audience. Folk Song" is barely a folk song; it is a progressive pop tune with that elegant, Procul Harum-like, sweeping, mystical statement. There's a pretty piano against church-like organ and vocals, with amazing guitar embellishments by Chris Spedding.
Filed under Jazz Related Rock By JACK BRUCE. Reducing the backing band from his debut to guitarist Chris Spedding and drummer John Marshall, Jack Bruce continued to play a wide range of instruments for his second solo album 'Harmony Ro. If not as commercially successful as his debut, it remains a more satisfying album on some levels. Tonally 'Harmony Row' occupies similar territory for 'Songs for a Tailor,' with Bruce's piano featuring heavily, usually more prominent than his trademark 'busy' bass
The compositions of Jack Bruce take over on Disraeli Gears (1967), an album decidedly more pop and less bluesy, produced by Felix Pappalardi. Strange Brew is a typical example of how the group could transform blues into rock for intellectuals who were tired of Beatles pop tunes. Tales Of Brave Ulysses, Clapton's tour de force, features the introduction of the wah-wah pedal. Immediately after the dissolution of Cream, Jack Bruce began to collaborate with jazz musicians. Harmony Row (Atco, 1971) riprese il suo programma di reinventare la canzone rock con inflessioni ancor piu& jazz ed esperimenti ancor piu& audaci: Victoria Sage e& un'altra ballad spettrale, mentre You Burned The Tables On Me e& una piece di progressive-rock. Il suo album piu& coraggioso fu pero& anche l'ultimo di rilievo.
The album takes its title from a tenement street in Glasgow, near where Bruce grew up. The street, since demolished, was famous as the largest unbroken houserow in Europe, stretching for over a mile Although since cited by Bruce as his favourite solo album, Harmony Row did not chart upon its release (it did continue to sell over a long period of time consistently)
