“He’s a force of nature.” – Carlos Santana
“The world’s greatest drummer.” – Chad Smith, Red Hot Chili Peppers

Best known as the fiery, game-changing drummer from the 1960's British supergroup Cream (w/ Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce), Ginger Baker is a true music pioneer. Inspired by a love of African rhythms and the drumming of jazz greats Art Blakey, Max Roach and Elvin Jones, Ginger’s unique style of drumming created the foundation for an entirely new sound in rock music. Now, on the heels of the 2012 documentary Beware of Mr. Baker, which brought him and his fascinating life to a wider public, Ginger Baker takes the influences that helped shape him and puts them front and center with his powerhouse Jazz Confusion quartet on Why? his first new album in 16 years.
