Burch Meets Baker

In another of the continuing archival series of Ginger Baker related footage, we have Clark Burch meeting Ginger Baker at the Parker, Colorado polo field. Burch had roped me into running camera, as you will hear.

Clark talks about his dream jazz music video starring Ginger, to be shot later that summer. Related video here and here.
