All Quiet in Cuicoland: The 1999
New York City Sessions



Jack has done it again.  During November and early  December 1999, he was toiling in Manhattan studios, recording tracks for a promising new album.  The project, tentatively titled All Quiet in Cuicoland, is a Jack Bruce solo effort done in collaboration with co-producer Kip Hanrahan.  Kip's rhythm players perfectly complement Jack's extraordinary bass playing and exquisite vocals, lending Jack's already unique compositions a modern, Latin tinge. 

Special guest artists include Jack's son Malcolm, Doctor John, Gary Moore, Vernon Reid, Changito and many others.  The new album is a fine work drawing on diverse musical influences and legendary talents.  Jack's voice is in top shape.  His new compositions range in style from classic, Willie Dixon inspired blues to the subtle and gentle beauty that reflect his growing introspective approach to songwriting.

Jack composed literally dozens of new pieces in preparation for the new album.  From these, Jack and Kip selected some ten gems for inclusion.  In addition, Jack re-invented a half dozen previous compositions, including classics he wrote during his days with Cream, West, Bruce & Laing, and selections from his solo albums Songs for a Tailor and I've Always Wanted to Do This.


Below are some photographs from the sessions, taken by Jack and the Webmaster.
