Sample underlined are available at the Abstractlogix website
  2006 Release. Mahavishnu Orchestra fans must love the fact that Billy Cobham is performing the music of the Mahavishnu Orchestra and the cd comes with a beautiful forword by John McLaughlin. It surely is a meeting of the spirits.. again.
John McLaughlin :
In the earlier days of my career, I was and still am, a great fan of Thelonius Monk. One day I found a recording of his music transcribed for big band. This was a milestone recording for me since I grew up listening to big bands, but always played in small groups, and to hear Thelonious' music in this way was revolutionary.
Today I have been granted the same honour by the hr-Bigband and my old colleague from those marvellous times, Billy Cobham.
I would have never imagined these particular compositions being played by a big band, but in a way you have made a dream come true !
Very Special Thanks !!!
