Nitin Sawhney, the musical director, shared, "I felt deeply honored when Natasha and Margrit asked me to musically direct this wonderful tribute show to Jack Bruce’s fantastic body of work. Directing such a range of musical legends, who all came together to reproduce and perform the highlights of Jack’s work, was an enormously inspirational experience. Everyone was determined to rise to the occasion and bring their own special talents to make this an unforgettable night and a fitting response to one of rock’s greatest songwriters and icons. Thank you to all of Jack’s amazing family for the privilege of bringing such an important evening to life."
This tribute concert is a lasting memory of the musical repertoire of which Jack was such a part. And of the man himself; often outspoken, volatile and impassioned, he retained the humble warmth and intelligence which marked him as one of the great musical personalities of our time.
