We are honored and excited to present the album Drumn Voice Remixed by the legend Billy Cobham in collaboration with Italians finest music producers and composers Novecento.
The internationally renowned drumming virtuoso, percussionist, composer Billy Cobham, has dedicated his whole life to musical exploration and creative expression. Born in Panama, he has been surrounded by music. His father was a pianist, his mother was a singer and Billy started playing drums at four years old. Throughout his career he has collaborated with artists like Miles Davis, Horace Silver, Airto Moreira, George Benson and appeared on over 300 recordings, including icons like Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones, Jack Bruce, Bob Weir, and James Brown, and to date, has produced and released more than forty albums as a leader. Acclaimed as jazz-rock fusion's greatest drummer, Cobhams dramatic, explosive power mixed with emotional spontaneity, extraordinary dexterity, and complex style of play brought him global attention and critical acclaim. The first album Spectrum is a masterpiece and still considered a reference album today.
'Drum'N Voice' is a collaborative project with the Nicolosi family, known collectively as Novecento. After reaching the top of the European and American charts with their Italo Disco hits, they decided to explore new ideas and evolve their music leading to a jazz and ambient territory and collaborating with some incredible artists. The album, recorded between Milan, London, Los Angeles and New York, also feature collaborations with incredible artists like Eumir Deodato, Stanley Jordan, Frank Gambale, Gregg Kofi Brown, George Duke, Brian Auger, Bob Mintzer. Billy delivers an amazing creativity and listening experience that unveils its unique style in playing drums and percussions.
The first part include two strong reworks. Boris Dlugosch & Cassara are responsible of a stellar rework of Over infusing that funky disco energy with their irresistible groove, a driving bassline leading to a breakdown to die for. Mark E goes deeper on Sensations taking us on a journey. The swinging percussion, the acid synth and the celestial jazzy sax create a perfect atmosphere.
Two stunning cuts for our summer nights !
