Nikos Deja Vu - Billy Cobham - Stratus (2004 live)
William C. Cobham (born May 16, 1944 in Panama), is a Panamanian American jazz drummer, composer and bandleader.
Coming to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s with trumpeter Miles Davis and then with Mahavishnu Orchestra, Cobham is, in the words of Steve Huey, "generally acclaimed as fusion's greatest drummer with an influential style that combines explosive power and exacting precision.
This is my favorite song, I wish I could find the ORIGINAL VIDEO from the LP SPECTRUM where STRATUS is included.
In my opinion. this LP is a STATION in the music history..
The LP SPECTRUM recorded at Electric Lady Studios,
New York on May 14-16, 1973. with the following personnel:
Billy Cobham (percussion);
Joe Farrell (soprano & alto saxophone, flute);
