BILLY COBHAM - Drums
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 Spectrum Band includes some of the most sought-after A-list players:
DEAN BROWN - Guitar
For close to 30 years guitarist/composer/arranger/educator Dean Brown has been an integral part of the global fusion and contemporary jazz scene. Those who have seen and heard Dean Brown perform are immediately struck by the passion and energy he puts into each note. His compositions are thoughtful and intense, yet lyrical vehicles for individual as well as group expression.
GARY HUSBAND - Piano
Gary Husband is one of a rare breed of musicians in that his expression is divided equally in his capacity as a drummer and a keyboardist of international repute. His classical roots, his quest and development in the improvisational, jazz and jazz/fusion areas - not to mention his tenure in the pop, rock, funk and blues circuits - are all evident inside Gary's distinct and far-reaching musical personality. His solo album and DVD output over the last several years has also reinforced his status as a critically acclaimed writer and arranger in the contemporary music world.
RIC FIERABRACCI - Bass
Bassist Ric Fierabracci has performed, recorded and run the gamut for artists like Chick Corea, and Dave Weckl to Pop artists such as Sir Tom Jones, Stevie Wonder and others. Ric has also recorded many tracks for the "Guitar Hero" Video games. His latest Studio work has included the bass tracks for the CBS Hit TV series "Without a Trace"
JERRY GOODMAN - Violin
Jerry Goodman is an American violinist best known for playing electric violin in the bands The Flock and the Jazz Fusion Mahavishnu Orchestra.
