Billy Cobham's cobweb
This Web Page is dedicated to the accomplishments of one of the great drummers of our time, Billy Cobham. For over four decades Billy Cobham has been in the forefront of the drum world as a player, composer, and educator of drummers and other musicians in all corners of the world. Just checking his discography will give you an appreciation of how many different musicians, playing every style of music you can think of that Billy has collaborated with. He has been one of the most in-demand session drummers on the planet, and his clinics for his many endorsers are must-see events ! To experience him in live concert is to witness a master at work.
A documentary starring Billy, entitled Sonic Mirror, was released in April 2007, and has been shown at a number of film festivals in Europe, South America, and in California. It has been released on DVD in Europe and we hope will come to America one day. It's a magnificent movie !!
Billy is currently touring with a new band called the Crosswinds Project with Fareed Haque on guitar, Paul Hanson on saxophones and bassoon , Tim Landers on bass and Scott Tibbs on keyboards ! They are re-visiting the music from Bill's second studio album called Crosswinds, and the band sounds fantastic ! The band is currently on tour in Europe and will be coming to the USA for some dates in the coming months . In September, he will once again be appearing at the Blue Note in New York City in trio with Ron Carter and Donald Harrison for w week of shows !
