To celebrate the release of Ginger Baker’s new CD, Why?, Motéma Records has put together a prize package that all Ginger Baker fans will want to get their hands on.
Ginger Baker Why? Best known as the fiery, game-changing drummer from the 1960s British supergroup Cream (with guitarist Eric Clapton and bassist Jack Bruce), Ginger Baker is a true music pioneer. Inspired by a love of African rhythms and the drumming of jazz greats Art Blakey, Max Roach, and Elvin Jones, Ginger’s unique style of drumming created the foundation for an entirely new sound in rock music. Now, on the heels of the 2012 documentary Beware of Mr. Baker, which brought him and his fascinating life to a wider public, Baker takes the influences that helped shape him and puts them front and center with his powerhouse Jazz Confusion quartet on Why?, his first new album in 16 years.
Three lucky winners will each receive a copy Why?, a pair of Ginger Baker signature Zildjian drumsticks, a personalized Remo drumhead, and a Why? poster.
The entrance period for this contest has ended. Thanks to those who entered. Winners will be contacted via email.
