Artist: Billy Cobham
Album: Shabazz
Genre: Fusion, Post-Bop
Label: Wounded Bird Records
Released: 1975/2000
Quality: FLAC (tracks+.cue)
  1. Shabazz
  2. Taurian Matador (Revised)
  3. Red Baron (Revised)
  4. Tenth Pinn


  • Billy Cobham - percussion
  • John Abercrombie - guitar
  • Michael Brecker - saxophone
  • Randy Brecker - trimpet
  • Glen Ferris - trombone
  • Milcho Leviev - keyboards
  • Alex Blake - bass

Shabazz captures Cobham's Total Eclipse band in a live setting, and contains two originals, "Shabazz" and "Tenth Pin." The other two songs, "Taurian Matador" and "Red Baron," which debuted on Cobham's classic recording, Spectrum, are given an impressive update. All of the songs are blowing sessions allowing each musician ample time to develop their ideas. Cobham attacks his drums with a vengeance on the introduction to "Shabazz" and on his powerful solo for "Tenth Pin." This is a good, old-fashioned blowing session that captures one of Cobham's best bands at their peak.
