Billy Cobham Group: Red Baron (Live, 2002)

As bassists, we love when there’s a great drummer by our side. (And the opposite is among the worst experiences in life.)

We should all be so lucky to stand next to one of the all-time greats: drummer Billy Cobham.

In this live performance in 2002, Cobham’s group took the stage to perform “Red Baron”. Bassist Stefan Rademacher gets the honor of playing that envious role, and lays down a nice solo along the way.

And while we’re here, you might want to check out this performance of the tune back in 1976, featuring Alphonso Johnson.
