Only a few times in history has a musician been singled out as the world-class master of his instrument. Billy Cobham is one of those few artists. For over 30 years, he has received international acclaim as the total consummate drummer.

Billy Cobham's explosive technique powered some of the fusion genre's most important early recordings - including groundbreaking efforts by Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra - before he became an accomplished bandleader in his own right. At his best, Cobham harnessed his amazing dexterity into thundering, high-octane hybrids of jazz complexity and rock 'n roll agression. He was capable of subtler, funkier grooves on the one hand, and awe-inspiring solo improvisations on the other.
