Billy Cobham’s Crosswinds Project
30 March 2018 @ 19 h 30 min - 20 h 45 min
Widely regarded as the “world’s greatest drummer” and revered for his musical ingenuity, jazz fusion virtuoso Billy Cobham has contributed seminally as a master drummer, percussionist, composer, producer, educator, clinician and tireless musical explorer. With the same energy and exuberance he displayed in his youth, he forges ahead with an everpassionate commitment to innovation and service to the world through his music.
Billy Cobham’s Crosswinds Project featuring:
Billy Cobham – Drums
Paul Hanson – Bassoon, Saxophone
Fareed Haque – Guitar
Tim Landers – Bass
Scott Tibbs – Keys
The Crosswinds Project will be focusing on the album (WEA 1974) in reflection of the originals through updated arrangements by Billy Cobham. There will be two or three new compositions plus favorites like “Red Baron”, “Taurian Matador”, “Quadrant Four” and “Stratus” to round out the show.
The original Crosswinds Album was recorded at Electric Lady Land Studios in New York City in 1974. That band consisted of Garnett Brown-trombone, Michael Brecker-woodwinds, Randy Brecker-trumpet, John Abercrombie-guitar, George Duke-keyboards, and Billy Cobham. Cobham co-produced that recording with Ken Scott. The material on the original CD includes “Pleasant Pheasant”, “Spanish Moss” (a suite in 4 parts), “Heather” and “Crosswinds”.
