Billy Cobham: Spectrum 40 Live /with Gary Husband, Dean Brown, Ric Fierabracci

A new live CD recording from last years' celebrated Spectrum 40 tours!
In the summer of 2015, Cobham will release a live CD recording from last years' celebrated Spectrum 40 tours, which dazzled audiences around the world in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Spectrum CD, the defining album of the jazz-fusion genre.
Ever since his breakthrough in the early 1970s as a founding member of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and as a drummer/leader whose recordings (such as Spectrum) and powerful, complex style of play exerted a strong influence on the course of jazz and jazz-fusion-Billy Cobham has remained a tireless musical explorer.
Panamanian by birth, a New Yorker by upbringing, and a resident of Switzerland for more than 25 years, Cobham has pursued an ever-broadening, ever-deepening engagement with the world not only as a master drummer and percussionist but as a composer, producer, educator, and clinician who gives service through music even as he constantly expands his personal creative expression.

The new album features an all-star cast of rock musicians at the top of their game, including Jeff Scott Soto (vocals), Russell Allen(vocals), Tony Franklin (bass), Vinny Appice (drums), Derek Sherinian (keyboards), and more!

Says Joel, “Years ago, I released three solo albums that were mainly instrumental guitar music. I wanted to put something out that showcased my production, writing and playing in the genre that I'm known for, which is melodic, hard rock. That’s when I decided to start what I consider to be my rock side project, Joel Hoekstra's 13”. Watch the official EPK for “Dying To Live”.

Joel handled the bulk of the creative process on the album by handling the production, song writing and arranging (music and lyrics). The pedigree of musicians on the album is second to none. The new album showcases the best rock ensemble that contemporary rock music has to offer. Joel’s astounding, versatile guitar playing raises the bar to a new level.
