They once voted Ginger Baker as the musician least likely to survive the 60s.

Now, four-and-a-bit decades later, the former Cream drummer has proved them all wrong, returned to the UK and formed a formidable quartet with funk and jazz giant Pee Wee Ellis (tenor sax), Alec Dankworth (bass), and Abass Dodoo (percussion).The music is a mix of Thelonius Monk, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, plus originals by Pee Wee Ellis and Mr Baker himself

Ginger Baker’s Jazz Confusion is at the Stephen Joseph Theatre at 7.30pm on Thursday June 27.
