Personnel: Billy Cobham (drums); Barry Finnerty (guitar); Don Grolnick (keyboards); Tim Landers (bass guitar).
Billy Cobham's 1980 quartet, while fusion-oriented, was pretty versatile. Reflecting the interests of its leader, the group could romp through an uptempo blues like "Flight Time," be reflective on a ballad (the first half of "6 Persimmons"), or rock out on "Antares" and the well-titled "Jackhammer." The late Don Grolnick shows what a major loss his premature death was; Barry Finnerty displays his hot licks on guitar; bassist Tim Landers is supportive, funky, or swinging when called for; and Billy Cobham is intense in spots while also showing restraint. While not a classic release, the music on this recording has not become dated or lost its power. ~ Scott Yanow
