Billy Cobham Band - Live at Montreux Jazz Festival, July 19th, 1978 [SBD][2CD][FLAC]

SoundBoard Recording

This is post peak Cobham but I have a soft spot for this album/group. Underated-IMO. The 20 min Stratus is guaranteed to knock your socks off. Tom Coster is a great surprise here! He does not play on the album or any other recordings that I know of. Of course, Mark Soskin is great too. Also, if you don't know already this IS the Randy Jackson of Journey/American Idol fame. Saw him with Narada in 83' and he killed! Charles Singleton is not well known but he does some nasty solos.

Thanks to mr_mags

Cooooool... Cobham with Coster sounds awesome. But it was your comments about Randy Jackson that pushed me over the line... I'd love to hear The Dog blazing on some thundering bass... the only place I ever heard him was on a John Fogerty with Jerry garcia tape I have. As always... thanks so much for the great post!
