Billy Cobham

October 11, 2008

I feel ancient synapses of musical memory unlocking lately. I formed my jazz tastes listening to Billy Cobham’s album “A Funky Thide of Sings” (1975) and the Billy Cobham and George Duke Band “Live on Tour in Europe” (1976).

I just found a video of Cobham/Duke playing together again in 1998. My gosh, Billy Cobham has only gotten better over the years. This one’s for my drummer friends; you know who you are.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

One response to Billy Cobham

  1. Ok, this isn’t related to Billy Cobham, but it is related to music and the blog is all about conversation, right? So Birgit got a “Dead Can Dance” DVD for her birthday from my sister yesterday. Have you heard (of) them? It was intriguing but very different kind of stuff. I would be interested to hear your and your readers opinions.
