An hour with the fusion powerhouse.

Not one to skimp on the size of his kit, drummer Billy Cobham is one of the most decorated percussionists out there. With countless records as a leader to his name, Cobham was timekeeper throughout Miles Davis’ electric period and one of the premium engine rooms behind the development of jazz fusion.

An inner-mounting jazz-inflected journey of its own, Glenn Astro and Ajnascent mark the release of new mini-LP Even on Berlin’s mischievous Money $ex Records, with an hour long tribute to the power and majesty of Cobham’s kicks, coming full circle as beat-makers to return to their roots in joyous and improvised workouts.
