Monday 23rd – Saturday 28th February
Featuring Mark King & Michael Lindup of Level 42 Saturday 28th only
Master drum legend Billy Cobham appears at Ronnie Scott’s for a very special week residency.
With his matchless, dazzling, ambidextrous skills, Cobham has applied the same insistent fervour to his long list of monumental achievements including his classic album ‘spectrum’ and his stint in the original jazz-fusion juggernaut Mahavishnu Orchestra. He is also an accomplished composer and record producer. As one of the first percussionists ( along with Max Roach and Tony Williams) to utilize the Electronic Drum Controller made in 1968 by the Italian Meazzi Drum Company he was at the forefront of the electronic music industry and its development through Jazz. In addition, he is one of the few percussionists specializing in the jazz drum set to lead his own band. The award winning Cobham has custom-designed trend setting acoustic and electronic drum sets and has endorsed products that he created and refined.
Billy will be inviting musical guests Gregg Brown to join him on Wednesday and as a special one-off exclusive, Michael Lindup & Mark King of Level 42 fame will join him for his second show on Saturday.
