Ultimate Play-Along Billy Cobham Conundrum: Horn Trax

Books and CDs | Horn

Publisher: Alfred Publishing
Artist: Billy Cobham
Series: Conundrum
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Rare is the drummer who is both influwntial and essential to a genre, but Billy Cobham is just that in regards to jazz, and consequently to music in general. He's performed with Miles Davis - displaying his ambidextrous drumming on classic recordings.

This play-along package features selections from Spectrum, where the individual instrument tracks are remixed so that the musician/student can play along, in essence filling in for any key member of the London Jazz Orchestra, with whom this project was recorded. The experience is one that Cobham describes as 'accessible yet challenging'.

          Hi all. Whilst the musical and production quality of this set cannot be debated (it is excellent), I am neverthess disappointed. The reason is that it is not a 'play along' in the true sense, since most people who purchase playalong CDs do so in order to play solos over backing tracks. The book states that every second track on the CDs are 'minus guitar', but in this case the guitar solos are still in the mix, thus not making it possible to play your own solos over the backing. I would be interested to know whether the horn player's version also contains the horn solos (such the trumpet and alto sax) on each alternate track, or whether the same issue exists for the Horn version of the playalong also. Any input is appreciated. Steve.
