Never miss another 'Ginger Baker' show
Jazz Confusion: Ginger Baker + Pee Wee Ellis + Alec Dankworth + Abass Dodoo
Legendary rock drummer Ginger Baker, renowned for his work with Cream and Blind Faith, is returning to the UK for a jazz fusion tour. Teaming up with tenor saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, bassist Alec Dankworth, and African percussionist Abass Dodoo, the quartet will be performing as ‘Ginger Baker’s Jazz Confusion’.
Ginger Baker’s recognition as a drummer began during the Graham Bond Organisation in the early sixties. The band toured with The Who, The Troggs, The Moody Blues and Chuck Berry, attracting press interest for their outrageous behaviour and riotous fun. In 1964 Baker was considered “one of Britain’s great drummers” by Melody Maker magazine. While Baker was impressing music journalists, he was also attracting attention from other musicians, one of them being Eric Clapton. The two met, jammed, saw one another play in their then- current bands, added bass player Jack Bruce and formed Cream.
And the rest is musical history. Don’t miss your chance to catch one of the greatest drummers of all time performing alongside some world-class musicians, bringing international rhythms to Coventry audiences.
One of the most outstanding musicians and arrangers of the last 30 years and has worked with everyone from James Brown to Van Morrison. Using tenor saxophone as his principal musical voice, Pee Wee's distinguished career has embraced some of the most important musical movements of recent decades, from jazz to funk, via blues, gospel and a touch of rock.

A stalwart of the British jazz scene, Alec is one of the best acoustic bass players around. Since the 1980s, Alec has worked with musicians from across genres including Nigel Kennedy, Dave Brubeck, Van Morrison and of course his parents John Dankworth and Cleo Laine.
