Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Billy Cobham (piano, drums, tympani); Michael Brecker (soprano & tenor saxophones, flute); Randy Brecker (trumpet, flugelhorn); Glenn Ferris (tenor & bass trombones); Sue Evans (marimba); Milcho Leviev (keyboards); John Abercrombie, Cornell Dupree (guitar); Alex Blake (electric bass); David Earle Johnson (congas).
  • Recorded at Atlantic & Electric Lady Studios, New York, New York.
  • This is Billy Cobham's third solo recording under his own name and is a fine follow-up to Crosswinds. The mini-suite "Solarization" not only showcases the band's technical abilities, but also Cobham's strong compositional skills. It also features a schizophrenic piano solo ("Second Phase") from the underrated pianist Milcho Leviev, who sounds like a mutation of Cecil Taylor and Bill Evans. The funky "Moon Germs," on which John Abercrombie is pushed to inspiring new heights, became a Cobham classic. "The Moon Ain't Made of Green Cheese" is a beautiful flugelhorn solo by Randy Brecker backed by Cobham's debut on piano. The band stretches out on the lengthy "Sea of Tranquility," while "Last Frontier" is a gratuitous drum solo. This recording is highly recommended as Cobham still sounds inspired. ~ Robert Taylor
