Billy Cobham - The Drummer




Billy Cobham (16 de maio de 1944) é considerado um dos grandes bateristas da história da música norte-americana. Foi mundialmente reconhecido após gravar o álbum Bitches Brew de Miles Davis, considerado o primeiro álbum de jazz-rock da história da música norte-americana. Participou com Jonh Maclaughin, Rick Laird e Jan Hammer num dos maiores grupos de jazz-rock da história: Mahavishnu Orchestra. Acompanhou grandes nomes do funk como, por exemplo, James Brown. Seu álbum solo mais famoso é o Spectrum, de 1973.

Muito crédito é dado a Cobham por sua incrível técnica e habilidade ao instrumento, tendo influenciado gerações de bateristas das décadas de 1970, 1980 e 1990 tais como Dennis Chambers e Rick Lawton.

Drum Solo


Billy Cobham tem uma discografia incrível, tanto solo como Side man. A seguir são apresentados algumas obras primas deste mago das baquetas.


Bootleg 3 CDs. Uma coletânea dos melhores momentos de Mr. Cobham.


This bootleg is absolutely different of the official Live On Tour In Europe released in the same year, because the set list is not the same. But still a great one! Was recorded in the Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY (1976, March 19), from FM radio broadcast, with Billy Cobham on drums, George Duke on vocals and keyboards, Alphonso Johnson on bass and John Scofield on guitar.



Um disco que marca a parceria com o mago dos teclados, George Duke, fazendo um Jazz-Funk-Fusion de primeira.



Spectrum is the debut album of fusion drummer, Billy Cobham. Released in 1973, Spectrum is regarded as one of the most important and essential drummers' albums in jazz fusion genre. The album contains much influence of the music of Miles Davis and Mahavishnu Orchestra, with whom Cobham had previously collaborated extensively. Generally, Spectrum is considered to be Cobham's best album up to this day, and does embody a role as important as the work by Miles Davis, Weather Report, or Mahavishnu Orchestra among the development of the jazz fusion genre. Tommy Bolin, who would go on to join the hard rock band Deep Purple two years later, plays the lead guitar. The song "Stratus" appears in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV of the radio station "Fusion FM", as well as being the main sample in the Massive Attack hit "Safe from Harm".

Tthis is a very good jazz-rock fusion music with a lot of nice brass section segments...


E para encerrar, um discão de Billy Cobham, Stanley Clarke e Eumir Deodato.


The solos are great, the beat is heavy and funky throughout, and Deodato takes a number of excellent solos on Fender-Rhodes electric piano which I feel are real highlights of the album.
