On Wednesday, May 4, at 8:00 p.m., Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) will welcome drum legend Billy Cobham to The Garage at LACM for one of their informative drum clinics. As a drummer/leader, whose recordings (such as Spectrum) and complex style of play exerted a strong influence on the course of jazz and jazz-fusion Billy Cobham, has remained a tireless musical explorer. The event is open to the public by RSVP, however space is limited.
Highly regarded as a jazz-fusion drummer, Cobham has four-decades of professional experience, beginning with his work as a co-founder of Dreams in 1969 with Randy Brecker, Michael Brecker, John Abercrombie, Don Grolnick, Barry Rodgers and Will Lee. Cobham is well known for his contributions with Miles Davis’s group on four pivotal recordings including Bitches Brew and Tribute to Jack Johnson. His involvement performing, recording and producing with the WOMAD Festival (World of Music, Arts and Dance) with Peter Gabriel in 1993 has continued to this day. With a life-long career in the music industry, Cobham has since become a Modern Drummer Hall of Fame inductee.
General public may RSVP to attend online or by calling 626-568-8850.
