Billy Cobham - Life & Times (1976). Songs in album Billy Cobham - Life & Times (1976).

Only for completionists (3%). This album came out in 1976 when a lot of other fusion musicians had sold out and started producing "fuzak", but not Cobham. This album is just as innovative and energetic as anything that came out in the early 70s. For Cobham, this is a small band, but an extremely talented one. Doug Rauch and George Duke in particular.

Cobham was still exploring various funk patterns, as evidenced on "Life and Times" and "East Ba. "29" contains some inspired playing by Doug Rauch, while "Earthlings" is the most intense piece here led by Cobham's thunderous double bass shuffle. Scofield's performance more than makes up for this session dated sound.
