Billy Cobham: Spectrum 40 Live /with Gary Husband, Dean Brown, Ric Fierabracci
A new live CD recording from last years' celebrated Spectrum 40 tours!
In the summer of 2015, Cobham will release a live CD recording from last years' celebrated Spectrum 40 tours, which dazzled audiences around the world in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Spectrum CD, the defining album of the jazz-fusion genre.
Ever since his breakthrough in the early 1970s as a founding member of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and as a drummer/leader whose recordings (such as Spectrum) and powerful, complex style of play exerted a strong influence on the course of jazz and jazz-fusion-Billy Cobham has remained a tireless musical explorer.
Panamanian by birth, a New Yorker by upbringing, and a resident of Switzerland for more than 25 years, Cobham has pursued an ever-broadening, ever-deepening engagement with the world not only as a master drummer and percussionist but as a composer, producer, educator, and clinician who gives service through music even as he constantly expands his personal creative expression.

Vic Firth, who revolutionised drumsticks and became a household name for generations of percussionists after growing fed up with lacklustre quality, has died at the age of 85
I am shocked and deeply saddened his morning to hear of the passing of the legendary, inspirational, icon, innovator and true gentleman Mr Vic Firth. I remember meeting this lovely man in the mid '80s - an isolated occasion. He was there for the entire gig and offered beautiful and warm comments to me afterwards. Decades later I met him once again at a London Zildjian Artist Session, and he remembered me, and the occasion, to the button. Amazing. Just amazing. However, at this sad time I would like to express my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to all nearest and dearest to dear Vic, to all who loved him, worked with him... also to all those who (like me) had the honour of meeting him only fleetingly and being touched by his warm, sincere and totally benevolent spirit. I'm sure, like me, you will never have forgotten it. He very evidently never forgot us!
Rest in peace dear Vic, thank you so much for all you did and all you will always continue to stand for.
