Saturday, November 15th, 2003 at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art
Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert
with drummer Billy Cobham & Art of 5.
a few times in history has a musician been singled out as
the world-class master of his instrument. Billy Cobham is
one of those few artists. For over 30 years, he has received
international acclaim as the total consummate percussionist.
The legendary Billy Cobham, with his matchless, dazzling,
ambidextrous skills as a drummer, has applied the same insistent
fervor to his long list of monumental achievements. He’s
an accomplished composer and record producer. It is a rarely
known fact that he was at the forefront of the electronic
music industry and its development through Jazz.
has performed on hundreds of records with his own groups and
with some of the music’s most luminary artists, and
his trademark - biggest, fastest, explosive drumming - has
energized the international stages of concerts, symphonies,
big bands, Broadway, festivals, television and video. He has
been a teacher of his artistry, giving drum clinics, conducting
workshops and symposiums throughout the world. His stylistic
influence, which has literally created a category of music,
is an outstanding part of the history of modern music. On
this tour he will be performing with Art of 5 which features
Donald Harrison (saxophone), Guy Barker (trumpet), Julian
Joseph (piano) and Orlando La Fleming (bass).
