AL DiMEOLA & BILLY COBHAB
April 21, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $27 - $87
See guitar virtuoso Al DiMeola & drum aficionado Billy Cobham in this jazz-infused, high energy performance.
Guitarist, prolific composer and respected artist Al DiMeola has assembled what he describes as his “best group by fit in my career”– the “Al DiMeola World Sinfonia 2000”. His dazzling technique on both acoustic and electric guitars has afforded him regal status among fretboard aficionados while the depth and soulfulness of his inherent lyricism have won him legions of additional fans. He pioneered blending world music and jazz, as is evident in 1976′s Land of the Midnight Sun, 1977′s Elegant Gypsy and 1978′s Casino, and continued to mix world sounds in 1998′s The Infinite Desire, 2000′s The Grand Passion, 2006′s Consequence of Chaos and 2008′s La Melodia, Live in Milano.
Drummer and founding member of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Billy Cobham offers recordings (such as Spectrum) and a powerful, complex style of play which has exerted a strong influence on the course of jazz and jazz-fusion. Famous for his explosive, fast, spectacular playing, Cobham has remained a tireless musical explorer and has played and recorded with hundreds of top musicians, including Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Larry Coryell, and Horace Silver.
