Fun Fusion: The Billy Cobham - George Duke Band "Live" On Tour In Europe (1976)
Billy Cobham (drums), George Duke (keyboards), John Scofield (guitar), Al Johnson (bass)
A classic of the fusion genre. Great musicians, very funky high energy stuff played with a sense of humor often lacking in the genre. John Scofield is especially brilliant on guitar but everyone plays their butts off. Great album cover artwork by Cal Schenkel who did covers for Frank Zappa. I remember being quite fond of this album and the excellent artwork way back when. It has stood the test of time quite well. George duke offers some nice thoughts on the album here.
