"Ginger Baker shows, again, that he can create more sound, more music, more emotion from drumming than anyone else. The drums are out front, not tucked into the background. Ginger Baker, Bill Frisell, and Charlie Haden play so well together that it seems they have always been together. Frisell is a master guitarist, and he brings this music alive. Haden has always been a master at getting more emotion from the bass than other players, and he clearly anchors these sessions. The music can be challenging, and it demands that you pay attention. It takes several listens to "get" it. This music is absolutely the opposite of everything Cream was, so do not expect anything remotely like the power trio Ginger played with in the '60s."
The second installment from Baker-Haden-Frissell

"This CD may actually be a little more consistent than the first one,though it lacks anything as explosive as "East Timor." The addition of a second guitarist and Bela Fleck on banjo on a few tracks fleshes out the guitar-bass-drums trio sound.So, if Baker, Bruce, and Clapton in their twenties were "Cream" these guys must be "Cognac" or something."
