||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 !!!
