Spectrum is the debut solo album by jazz fusion drummer Billy Cobham. The album was heavily influenced by the music of Miles Davis, with whom Cobham had previously collaborated extensively, and Cobham's previous band Mahavishnu Orchestra. The song Stratus appears in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV of the radio station Fusion FM, as well as being the main sample in the Massive Attack hit Safe from Harm.

Ken Scott, engineer of Spectrum, recounted: Bill Cobham's drums were treated in exactly the same way as I recorded every other drummer. I just used more mics: Neumann U67s on toms, D20s or RE20s at Electric Lady on the bass drums, Neumann KM54 or 56 on snare, and either STC 4038s or Beyer M160 ribbon mics for the overheads. One other thing: in order to dampen the snare, Bill just laid his wallet on the top head. Spectrum is Billy Cobham's solo debut as a composer and he takes us through some rather familiar territory. The album is very reminiscent of both his past work with Miles Davis, though obviously much closer to the overly vigorous depiction of Jazz Fusion that The Mahavishnu Orchestra is renowned for. Quadrant 4 starts off the album on a high note. Immediately, without hesitation or restrain, the music erupts with the passionate dexterity of it's musicians. Tommy Bolin and Billy Cobham have developed quite the synergy during the recording sessions, and it can be easily per. Billy Cobham : Spectrum,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен.
