Cobham Duke Band: “Juicy” Live with Alphonso Johnson

Juan Alderete shared this on his Facebook page a while back, saying only “this leaves me speechless.” I feel about the same way.

Filmed in Montreux in 1976, this clip captures the kind of energy you just don’t see in every band. Alphonso Johnson holds down the low end with tight yet lyrical playing before taking a tasty solo at the 4:35 mark.
