Billy Cobham's 75th Brithdaywith Crosswinds Project Special Guest Randy Brecker
The uncontested master of fusion rhythms is celebrating his 75th birthday by revisiting his second solo album. Released in 1974, Crosswinds is from a key period in the career of Billy Cobham: over five years, he played for Miles Davis on the legendary Bitches Brew, founded Mahavishnu Orchestra, and released his first two albums. But we had to wait over forty years for Billy Cobham to once again play Crosswinds in its entirety on stage. The cherry on the cake is the presence of trumpet-player Randy Brecker, who participated in the original recording. Nine years since his last visit, Billy Cobham is back at the Montreux Jazz Festival, where he has exchanged unforgettable moments on stage with George Duke, Oscar Peterson, Quincy Jones, and John McLaughlin. This will be the drummer’s first performance in the intimate surroundings of the Montreux Jazz Club.
