iTunes Review

The most important thing to understand about Billy Cobham and George Duke’s teaming is that while the pair may have been icons of fusion jazz, the music you hear on Live on Tour in Europe should be regarded, undeniably, as funk. It's funk that's sometimes refracted, convoluted, and distended, but it's funk nonetheless. It’s there in the skittering cracks of Cobham’s drums and the greasy groans of Duke’s keyboards. The Commodores may have been America’s most popular funk outfit, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a Commodores song as funky as “Hip Pockets.” The great thing about this vision of funk music is that Cobham and Duke didn’t feel pressure to turn it into pop. Their jazz sensibility let them mine the music solely for the sake of rhythm and groove and sonic surprise. Even something as indulgent as “Frankenstein Goes to the Disco” becomes dazzling just by virtue of the duo’s exchange, and how much fun they have playing off each other. While there's plenty here for fusion diehards to appreciate, songs like “Do What Cha Wanna” should be equally revered by fans of Sly Stone and Donny Hathaway.

Customer Reviews

Classic set from a jazz fusion supergroup.

A blistering lineup that not only featured Mr. Cobham and Mr. Duke but also the extraordinary Alphonso Johnson on bass and a young John Scofield on guitar. Funky and furious, this is one of those seminal live albums that showcases what a magical time this era was for cooking instrumental jazz-rock. A must-have!

While Cleaning my house part 2

While Cleaning my house part 2.. so I reviewed/commented Spectrum...then I saw an icon for this Live Album. Then I went back to my bathroom closet where I kept all my vinyl records and listeed to this. Wow..what a performace. aside from Billy & George.. he's got then young Alphonso and Jon. I saw this tour at Roxy on Sunset in LA/Hollywood. I remember lining up hours before the show.. I think Roxy club only holds 500 people. I did get a front table/seat had my arms resting on stage. And it blew my mind. I am a guitarist - kind of a Rock Snob with Beatle influence. that night changed my life.. I still love Led Zep and Beatles. but I enjoy the Fusion Jazz a lot.. I thought 25 year old Jon Scofield was amazing that night I believe Alfonso was very young ... like 19 at that time. Cudos to iTUNES for recognising good music and bringing these timeless master performace to digital age.. Thanks

Cobhams best album!

This album is without a doubt Billy Cobahms finest! I wore it out on vinyl and now let's see how long it takes to wear it out digital!

Generally acclaimed as fusion's greatest drummer, Billy Cobham's explosive technique powered some of the genre's most important early recordings -- including groundbreaking efforts by Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra -- before he became an accomplished bandleader in his own right. At his best, Cobham harnessed his amazing dexterity into thundering, high-octane hybrids of jazz complexity and rock & roll aggression. He was capable of subtler, funkier grooves on the one hand, and awe-inspiring...
