Six Days at Ronnie Scott's: Billy Cobham on Jazz Fusion and the Act of Creation

By Brian Gruber

Released: 2018-06-22
Kindle Edition (203 pages)

Six Days at Ronnie Scott s: Billy Cobham on Jazz Fusion and the Act of Creation
 
Product Description:
Few musicians have transformed a genre like Panama-born, New York-raised Billy Cobham. SIX DAYS AT RONNIE SCOTT’S: Billy Cobham on Jazz Fusion and the Act of Creation is a one-of-a-kind oral history of a legend’s life work. From his early days with Horace Silver and Dreams to the epochal Bitches Brew sessions with Miles Davis to the breakthrough Mahavishnu Orchestra and beyond, here is a first-ever deep dive into six decades of musical innovation. The book’s setting is six days at iconic London jazz club Ronnie Scott’s, as Britain’s hottest arranger Guy Barker orchestrates and leads a big band performing Cobham’s greatest works. Jazz greats such as Ron Carter, Randy Brecker, and Jan Hammer, family members, club owners, critics and superfans provide colorful insights and remembrances. Readers are given an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look into rehearsals, performances, adjustments and preparations between shows, and the evolution of a sold-out six-day run.

What They Are Saying About “Six Days at Ronnie Scott’s”

"The book is a massive undertaking... Despite being raised a generation and culture apart from Bed-Sty raised Panamanian born William Emanuel Cobham, Jr., Gruber manages to pull off a remarkable feat of music journalism... The interviews with Cobham cover a galaxy of subjects; from the cruel realities of the New York public school system, to the rhythmic complexity of a woman sashaying when walking or the sonic intricacies of live performance... There is so much information in this book that any serious student of Jazz, Fusion or music history will reap a bountiful harvest... A nice touch is the Spotify Soundtrack for each chapter of the book that contains some very unexpected musical gems. Hats off to Brian Gruber who accomplished what few could have written with such elaborate authority." – T Watts, Cadence Jazz Magazine

From Jon Newey, editor-in-chief of Jazzwise, the UK’s biggest selling monthly jazz magazine and the leading English language jazz magazine in Europe. “An interesting concept… his questions are knowledgeable and penetrating… rather than dallying in the kind of film-flam that obfuscates the detail, memories and opinions that make a biography breathe… Fast paced with anecdotes pouring from every page, it wraps with Cobham describing his dream line-up to play with. Want to know who? Then go grab a copy.”

From London’s Jazz FM, the UK’s “home of jazz, soul and blues” on Nigel Williams’ Saturday show, August 25th, Jazz FM’s highest rated weekly program. “The mark of a good read is something that conjures up pictures and just in that description, you’re already putting yourself backstage and seeing these conversations happen… an absolutely fascinating read. Any fan is obviously going to enjoy this.”

From Brent Keefe, Drumhead magazine. “Remarkably, Brian Gruber’s book is the first written on this legendary musician and although not a biography, it’s certainly biographical, overlaying six days at Ronnie Scott’s with six decades of Billy’s remarkable life and career… It’s a fascinating read… Cobham opens up and discusses several topics that I have not previously seen him discuss. It’s a terrific insight into the musical and personal life of this game-changing, world class drummer and is an essential read for fans of Cobham, Jazz, fusion and the culture of the 60s and 70s.”

From Geoff Nicholls, Rhythm magazine. Five stars (highest rating). "Well-written and thought-provoking, Gruber's book builds into a challenging document of a half-century of cutting-edge musical exploration."

From Eric “Doc” Smith, BeyondChron. “Brian Gruber’s fantastic new book… gives us a rare, behind the scenes look at the making of a six night performance… Brian Gruber’s Six Days at Ronnie Scott’s: Billy Cobham on Jazz Fusion and the Act of Creation, will certainly stand the test of time alongside some of the greatest tomes ever penned about jazz musicians.”

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
Drawn from conversations with the jazz musician and jazz-club proprietor, Ronnie Scott, and with his friends and contemporaries, this book offers a portrait of the man, his music and his business, and marks the 35th anniversary of Ronnie Scott's Club in Soho. It follows Scott's story from his early days as a sharp-dressing, wisecracking young dance-band musician in wartime London, through the coming of rock 'n' roll, hipster fashions and jive talk, to the setting up of his now famous club. The result is both a biography and an offbeat picture of life at the margins in post-war Britain. The book is an updated edition of "Let's Join Hands and Contact the Living", published in 1986.

Product Description:
Ronnie Scott tells here of his life as a musician and bandleader and as the founder, with his partner Peter King, of the great jazz club which bears his name. Ronnie said of running their world famous venue, 'It's made a happy man very old.' The book provides a humorous and shrewd behind- the-scenes account of the headaches and hysteria of running a club in the heart of London's Soho and coping with the capricious temperaments of some of the world's most celebrated artists. Some of My Best Friends Are Blues includes contributions by Benny Green and Spike Milligan, with cartoons by Mel Calman. This edition features a foreword by the late Pete King. Ronnie Scott died in 1996 but the Club survives as a testament to their vision and determination.
