In general, the melodies and the vamps are reasonably memorable. Cobham also takes an unaccompanied drum solo on "Storm". A photo taken by Billy Cobham himself is used for the cover art; it wraps around the spine to comprise both the front and back cover. Definitely a worthy album for fusion collectors! Side A 1.
Heather 4. Crosswind Total time Expectations are set high After the "Spectrum", your life won't be the same. Especially considering the fact we are talking about the genius of William Cecil Cobham Junior. But, at the end of the day, it turns that "Spectrum" remains one hit wonder. Because nothing can reach it. And "Crosswinds" is not as half as good. I will try to describe and rate "Crosswinds" as a standalone unit.
Although it's really difficult. No, first I must do my comparisons. Well, "Crosswinds" is quite different; first side is focused around Cobham's solo drum parts - and certainly, skill is here, idea is here, and "Storm" is a storm really.
Hey ho for the impression! If you are familiar with Carl Palmer's drum solos with lots of noisy, hissy gongs, you will get the idea. Cobham is placing on a new level all that. But I'm missing that flashy outbursts and delicated monstrosity of Mr. Cobham - his trademark, at least in my eyes ears. I'm missing that anxiety. The drumming is too homogenic - or shall I say hermetic - for my taste Not too gray but I was expecting more.
Actually, it's not only the drumming; that's the issue of the entire album. Crosswind Billy Cobham is a Panamanian-American jazz drummer who came to prominence in the late 60s and early 70s with trumpeter Miles Davis and with the Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Namespaces Article Talk.While his exhilarating, edgy "Spectrum" LP is a dazzling jazz rock/fusion tour de force, this album is more of a visit to Billy Cobham's roots in that it puts less emphasis on the driving, thunderous rock beats that characterized its predecessor and leans more toward traditional jazz colorings/5(7).
