I am giving this an extra star due to the excellent sound quality. It makes very good music that much more enjoyable.
This is what the CD technology was supposed to be all about. The sound is clear with a wide dynamic range. But, at the same time it has the warmth of a vinyl LP. This is unlike Cobham's GRP albums that pushed the new technology with crystal clear sound and punchy sounds....but those CDs sounded digital.
The group is a quartet of drums, guitar, bass and keyboards. Besides Cobham, I have not heard of any of the other musicians before, but they are all very good.
The music here is jazz fusion, similar to Cobham's early solo days, but not quite as daring. The compositions are generally longer (averaging over 10 minutes each) and a little more flowing and easy. It is just a subtle difference. It is not soft like some of Cobham's later works (which I really don't like). This might be his best album since the 1970s. I don't think the music is quite in the 5 star category because it isn't ground breaking, but with the sound quality, I am giving it 5 stars.
The album to get is the Stanley Clarke live album with Billy Cobham on it. There is just a sensational 20 minute duet between Clarke and Cobham on School Days.
All the players are playing with white hot musicianship.
Attention! This ain't no Kenny G, Kool Aid that is passed off as jazz.
Thanks, Billy for your dedication!!!!!
