BBM ("Bruce Baker Moore") is the name of the short-lived power trio formed in 1994 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.[1] 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.[2] The track, "Where in the World" was issued as a single, reaching Number 57 in the UK Singles Chart in August 1994.[2] 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.
