World-renowned jazz fusion drummer Billy Cobham announces a fourteen-city American and Canadian tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of his breakthrough album, Spectrum, which is widely regarded as one of the genreâ€™s most significant and influential works.
Jazz CafÃ© is proud to announce the return of Billy Cobham for one night and 2 performances, Saturday, October 5th at 8 and 10 PM.
The upcoming Fall Spectrum 40 Tour will brilliantly showcase Cobhamâ€™s explosive, complex style of play, which has thrilled music aficionados around the globe since the early â€˜70s when he was a founding member of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Today, after decades of boundless musical exploration, the versatile Cobham continues to evolve and innovate as a master drummer, percussionist, composer, producer, educator and clinician–as audiences around the country will soon experience through the unforgettable Spectrum 40 shows.
In what promises to be a mesmerizing series of performances in unique music venues in various North American regions, Cobham brings together an all-star support group for this landmark tour, featuring Dean Brown (guitar); Gary Husband (piano) and Ric Fierabracci (bass).
Cobham notes, â€œThe Spectrum 40 Tour represents the culmination of my ever-expanding, deepening lifetime journey of creative expression. I am so delighted to return to my roots in the States to share the stage with such stellar musicians on this historic tour, to give audiences a special Spectrum experience and above all, exuberantly celebrate the timeless, universal power of music.â€
