Billy Cobham's Glass Menagerie / Live '81

Billy Cobham’s Glass Menagerie was recorded live at the TDK Jazz Club in Riazzino, Switzerland in March of 1981. In addition to the great Mike Stern on guitar, the concert lineup included Michal Urbaniak (violin, sax), Gil Goldstein (piano), Tim Landers (bass), and, of course, the legendary and influential Cobham on drums.

One of the best fusion albums out there. The musicianship is on top and the melodies while being intricate are memorable and fun. I would recommend this album to those who don’t care for some of Cobham’s other far-out stuff. This one while obviously being more mainstream is much easier on the ears than Billy’s more experimental material. Unbelievable to see a young Mike Stern playing with such fire and on a Stratocaster. Just Amazing!!! The whole band is just unbelievable!!!
