Ginger Baker may have been inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but at heart he’s always been a jazz drummer. He got his start in the London jazz clubs of the 50s before¬†joining The Graham Bond Organisation.

Groundbreaking work in Cream, Blind Faith and Ginger Baker’s Airforce followed, and a move to Nigeria resulted in an innovative collaborative relationship with Fela Kuti.

Baker currently leads Ginger Baker Jazz Confusion, a jazz fusion quartet. In 2012 he was the subject of the documentary Beware of Mr Baker, which won the grand jury award for best documentary feature at its premiere at South by Southwest.
