Only a few times in history has a musician been singled out as the world-class mentor of his instrument. Billy Cobham is one of those few artists. For over 30 years, he has received international acclaim as the total consummate drummer. Billy Cobham's explosive technique powered some of the fusion genre's most important early recordings - including groundbreaking efforts by Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra - before he became an accomplished bandleader in his own right. At his best, Cobham harnessed his amazing dexterity into thundering, high-octane hybrids of jazz complexity and rock & roll aggression. He was capable of subtler, funkier grooves on the one hand, and awe-inspiring solo improvisations on the other.
8 tracks including "Tinsel Town," "You Within Me," "Crosswinds" and "Red Baron."
Acclaimed jazz drummer Billy Cobham shows off all his talents on this live release. Having worked with many jazz legends, including Miles Davis, Cobham is an accomplished jazz player who is capable of being a figurehead in his own right, as this live show more than proves.
