Awesome performance by the great drummer Billy Cobham with a band at the festival Leverkusener Jazztage (2016). The energy and skill of musicians led by Billy Cobham rolls over.
Cobham is there in my top 5 alongside Art Blakey, Max Roach and Buddy Rich. He is arguably the best composer of all Jazz drummers and that’s what sets him apart from most of his peers. Most of his albums are Jazz classics – “Spectrum”, “Crosswinds”, “Total Eclipse”, even those in his later career – “Focused”, “Nordic” and “North By Northwest”.
