BBM ("Bruce Baker Moore") is the name of the short-lived power trio formed in 1993 by long-established artists, bassist Jack Bruce, guitarist Gary Moore (both of whom had collaborated previously on Moore's Corridors of Power album) and drummer Ginger Baker. They released just one studio album, entitled Around The Next Dream, which was released on the Virgin record label. It reached Number 9 in the UK Albums Chart in the summer of 1994, but spent only four weeks in the listings.[1] The track, "Where in the World" was issued as a single, reaching Number 57 in the UK Singles Chart in August 1994.[1] Much of the work was written by Moore with contributions by Bruce and Baker. The album cover featured a picture of Baker.

The band went on a short UK tour to coincide with the album's release and also played a handful of rock festivals on the continent, before disbanding.


  • Ian Taylor – engineer, co-producer with BBM
  • Tommy Eyre – keyboards
  • Arran Ahmun – drums on "Where in the World"
  • Morris Murphy – trumpet on "Glory Days"
