Everyone knows his contributions to Cream but I also was a big fan of his collaborations with Robin Trower. He played on Apostrophe' although he & FZ didn't exactly express mutual praise afterwards.

71 is too young to pass away.

I also liked him very much as singer, my favourite cream song is we are going wrong. There was an early line up of Tony Williams lifetime once featuring Jack Bruce that sureley is completeley underrated till today:

Yes a great musician.

Let's not forget the excellent work he did with Kip Hanrahan in the 80's. A couple of "essential" albums there.

Jack Bruce revisits the lifetime repertoire 40 years later:
