Ginger Baker’s Airforce Flies Again!

Ginger Baker’s Airforce Flies Again!

Welcome aboard as Squadron Leader Baker scrambles his crew to fly you to new musical heights and rediscover some old standards along the route! Originally formed late in 1969 after the demise of supergroup Blind Faith, Baker (formerly GBO & Cream) hit on the idea of reinventing the Big Band sound of his youth. After sell out debut shows in Birmingham and London’s Royal Albert Hall on 12 & 15th January 1970, many agreed in hindsight that Airforce 1 well and truly brought the African influence into the popular arena for the first time.

 

With a changing line up of star musicians, two albums, Airforce 1 and 2 were released in 1970, to critical acclaim that remains to this day. Now in 2015, after successfully touring with his Jazz Confusion, Ginger has decided wear his wings one more and travel in a new direction with blues, Africa, vocals, rhythm and harmony. Airforce 3, will feature previous material and add exciting new arrangements whilst showcasing new talent and collaborating with old friends.

 

Join us for this special club show, which precedes a bigger world tour planned in 2016.

 

Please extinguish your cigarettes and fasten your safety belts; we can promise you will have a fantastic flight.

  1. I just watched Beware of Mr. Baker. Bravo… well done. I admire Ginger’s talent and perseverance and really have enjoyed his music over the years, and continue to do so. As for the blog, I will look forward to the release of the 2016 dates. Also, a correction for the blog:(… Jazz Confusion, Ginger has decided to wear his wings once more…). God Speed and Cheers, Todd.

  2. Hello All:

    Glad to see the master will hit the road soon again; hope to see you in the Great American Midwest on your ’16 tour. You have been missed Ginger.

    Buy you a beer & a shot Ginger; best bourbon and BBQ here in KC!

  3. I worked in the offices of RSO, 67 Brook Street back in late 60’s early 70’s and often reminisce about those heady days. I left and moved out to Newport Beach in 1973. The idea at the time was to open a Gunnell office in LA. Once over there I realised I didn’t want to work in LA, but stayed stateside for 8 years. I ran into Ginger one night in the Roebuck however when I returned. I was sharing a house owned by Chris Blackwell, along the road at the time. I was the grand old age of 32 by this time 🙂 Ginger wished me a happy birthday, and I honestly can’t remember anything from them on 🙂
    Anyhoo just wanted to say hi and keep on keeping on Peter.

  4. I’m a wee bit younger than you Mr Baker. I’ve always loved your talent and I recognize it anywhere. Thank you for being strong!

  5. Ginger is scheduled to play at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, Mass. on May 5th … Great place to see groups. Excellent sound etc. BYOB :>)

    I got my 4 tickets

  6. He’s scheduled to perform with the Airforce here in Cleveland in May. I’m hoping this group stays together long enough to make this gig!

  7. Glad to see you are coming to the states.
    Really looking forward to your gig in Nashville on my birthday.
