75th Birthday Celebration Tour
2019 marks Billy Cobham ́s 75th birthday. “It’s been an adventure, these seventy four years that I have been blessed to experience so much in my life” Billy says.
Billy Cobham came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s with trumpeter Miles Davis and then with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. According to Allmusic's reviewer, Cobham is "generally acclaimed as fusion's greatest drummer". He was inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1987 and the Classic Drummer Hall of Fame in 2013.
Jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker helped shape the sound of jazz, R&B and rock for more than four decades. A founding member of Blood, Sweat & Tears, his trumpet and flugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists from James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and Parliament/Funkadelic to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa.
