3.0 out of 5 stars Billy Cobham's glass menagerie dvd 22 Jun 2008
I rented from lovefilm, no info with disc, no info on film bar short biography of cobham and playlist.The musicians dont get any vocal introduction on stage either. Music is of v.high standard. Hi-hat and bass guitar a bit too up in mix.I generally prefer music without singing,and despite the amazing soloing by each of these great musicians,with no vocal respite or proper breaks inbetween each piece, I began to get a little bored with the possibly overlong and indulgent playing and found myself wishing they had included some vocal piece just to break it up some! Still worth a listen though as there really is some great playing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality, Billy has better DVD's 12 Aug 2006
By Ghetifal - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Billy Cobham, as I am, you may be disappointed with this DVD. The drums seem really low in the mix and you can see him doing a lot more than you actually hear unless you listen hard. I would have given it 4 stars for this but Michal Urbaniak and his electric saxophone ruined the performance further. He sounds so corny and smooth jazz-like=irritating. He doesn't have the groove in his playing that we get from Billy and the great Mike Stern (really young here, but an awesome performance). If you really crave a Cobham DVD as I did, go with the Culturemix Paris Concert. Get this only to complete you Cobham collection or hear young Mike Stern (his live DVD is worth checking out, too-by inakustik (they also put out Cobham's Paris concert--they always put out high quality concert videos).
