When a documentary opens with its subject belting the director hard on the nose, you know you’re in for something pretty unusual – but then legendary drummer Ginger Baker is exactly that.
Inspired by great post-war jazz players like Phil Seamen and Max Roach, Baker is best known for playing with Cream, Blind Faith and Ginger Baker’s Airforce, although he later abandoned Britain to settle in Nigeria to join the equally eccentric Fela Kuti. Following an interview he did with Baker for Rolling Stone in 2009, journalist Jay Bulger revisited the now ailing and financially strapped musician on his South African farm.
The film features many engaging reminiscences by the irascible, nay arrogant, 73-year-old, and interviews with past musical partners combined with period concert footage will prove compulsive viewing for all music fans.
