[FUSION FIREBIRD] Billy Cobham is widely considered the greatest drummer in fusion. He toured extensively with Miles Davis before an even more musically fruitful involvement with guitarist John McLaughlin. The two founded Mahavishnu Orchestra, recording the classic albums Birds of Fire and Inner Mountain Flame. If you’re a fan of King Crimson and those albums aren’t in your collection, do yourself a favor and pick them up immediately. In 1973, Cobham released his classic debut album, Spectrum, which now celebrates its 40th anniversary as a masterwork of percussion-led psychedelic guitar exploration. With Cobham now pushing 70, the time is ripe to see this grandmaster while he’s still got it.
