The Iridium Jazz Club is proud to present legendary jazz and fusion drummer Billy Cobham's Culture Mix made up of five musicians hailing from uniquely diverse social environments. Three hail from Europe (Stefan Rademacher-Germany, Per Gade-Denmark, Marcos Ubeda-Sweden), one born in the Caribbean (Billy Cobham) while the other hails from a family who's roots are embedded in the Caribbean, was born in England (Junior Gill). Billy Cobham has made a pact with these artists in his quest to present Jazz in a very unique and special way. This, in his words, allows for Jazz to be interpreted and presented through the collective experiences of these musicians who make up Culture Mix." Joining Culture Mix this week are special guests multi Grammy winner trumpeter Randy Brecker and percussionist extraordinaire Airto.
This is the third appearance for Billy Cobham at the Iridium. Culture Mix has been performing together throughout Europe and parts of the Middle East for the past three years. They are proof that music is one of the purest and sincere forms of expression.
Billy Cobham got his start in the late 1960s with piano great Horace Silver then in 1969 he formed his first group, the jazz-rock band, Dreams with Michael and Randy Brecker. The growing popularity of jazz-rock kept Cobham busy with recording dates with Miles Davis, Stanley Clarke and John McLaughlin
