Billy Cobham - Spectrum (1973)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 233 mb+3% recovery

Review by Scott Yanow:
Drummer Billy Cobham was fresh from his success with the Mahavishnu Orchestra when he recorded his debut album, which is still his best. Most of the selections showcase Cobham in a quartet with keyboardist Jan Hammer, guitarist Tommy Bolin, and electric bassist Lee Sklar. Two other numbers include Joe Farrell on flute and soprano and trumpeter Jimmy Owens with guitarist John Tropea, Hammer, bassist Ron Carter, and Ray Barretto on congas. The generally high-quality compositions (which include "Red Baron") make this fusion set a standout, a strong mixture of rock-ish rhythms and jazz improvising.

Один из любимых мной альбомов. Впервые услышал его где-то в 1975 г. На компакт-диске взял "в картоне", нашёл в Трансильвании, на Тверской.

Этот альбом просто необходим уже потому, что кроме Кобэма здесь отметились Jan Hammer и горячо мной любимый Tommy Bolin...
