Playlist Description

Billy Cobham set the gold standard for modern fusion drumming. After briefly driving the rhythms for Miles Davis' quintet, Cobham co-founded the original line-up of Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin and took the still nascent combination of jazz, funk and rock into the stratosphere. This incarnation of Mahavishnu burned brightly but quickly, though, and soon the Panamanian-born drummer embarked on an impressive session, solo and instructional career which continues to this day. Included in this playlist are some staggering examples of Billy Cobham's technique and dexterity from one of his more fertile periods of activity. Get ready to be amazed.
