“PALINDROME" set to be released January 2010

New York, NY: Billy Cobham's 2nd installment in the “Fruit From The Loom" series is set to be released at the beginning of 2010 through his production company “CREATIVE MULTIMEDIA CONCEPTS." The compositions in “Palindrome" represent Billy's re-engagement with music that he created as far back as thirty years ago: songs like “Moon Germs" (from “Total Eclipse", 1975), “A Days Grace" ("Flight Time", 1981) are presented in updated arrangements along with “Two For Juan" (1987, “Picture This"), “Alfa Waves" ("The Traveler",1995) and “Mirage" ("Focused", 1997). Rounding out this musical portfolio are never before released compositions: “Obliquely Speaking", “Isle Of Skye", “Cancun Market", “Torpedo Flo" and “Saippuakivikaupias", the Palindrome song. So, as Billy returns to his roots so does he continue to move forward with fresh ideas for old themes to accompany his most recent musical compositions.

The album features guest performances by Ernie Watts - Woodwinds, Michael Rodriguez - Trumpet, Marshall Gilkes - Trombone, Jean-Marie Ecay and Dean Brown - Guitars, Philippe Chayeb - Bass, Wilbert 'Junior Gill Steel Pan and PanKat, Christophe Cravero - Keyboards and Violin and Marco Lobo - Percussion.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
