Cindy Blackman

An accomplished, yet not flamboyant or showy drummer, Cindy Blackman has become a well-respected drummer and occasional bandleader in a short time. Both her mother and grandmother were classical musicians and her uncle a vibist. Blackman began playing drums as a child and studied classical percussion at the University of Hartford and Berklee. Alan Dawson and Lennie Nelson were two of her instructors. Blackman moved to New York in the early '80s, and played with Freddie Hubbard and Sam Rivers. She became Jackie McLean's regular drummer in 1987, and began recording as a leader that year for Muse. Blackman was a big attraction at jam sessions organized at the Blue Note by Ted Curson, and played with Don Pullen's trio in 1990 at several festivals. She has a few sessions available on CD. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

No doubt here. I wonder who the piano player is on Ballad Like? Wow! She seems to give the music a serious heavy sound...

I flat out love this sister. Gonna get her CDs.
bio is very out of date. No mention of her tours w/Lenny. Saw her do a drum clinic a few years back...7 toms...tuned to a scale...very musical...
I went to her Hubbys concert in May 2011 and when she played them drums I was like WOW!! She is Fantastic and Awesome!! She rocked!! I Love Blackman and Santana!! And for the most part I did Security where they lived it was nice to always see them!! Nice people and they not stuck up at all they are Amazing!!!!
I love how the person who wrote the bio says she's not flamboyant or showy. Ever see her in concert? Maybe she's not bombastic and her playing is complex and intelligent but she's showy alright. Tony Williams is her primary influence - I saw her do a beautiful tribute to Tony at the Great American in San Francisco...
Original from Yellow Springs, Ohio.....rig h t down the rode from me.....I hear some Tony Williams in her playing..... . Y e s she can flat out jam!

She has also had big success with Lenny Kravitz! The girl can flat out jam!
Great Sound! Love her!!!
AMAZING AMAZING. I GOT TO SEE HER IN A SMALL COUNTRY CLUB ROOM UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. After the show she was gracious in person as well and was as humble as a high school kid at a successful talent show. This drummer may have been discovered but she hasn't been realized yet. I can't even talk about her as a song writer - i haven't even been able to grasp that yet! I think you'll see what i mean. IF YOU GET A CHANCE, SEE THIS DRUMMER, share her music, and get her instructiona l s !
SHE IS VERY GOOD. FIRST TIME EVER HEARING HERE! THOSE WOMEN CAN THROW SOME STICKS TOO NOW!
I love this whole C.D.!!! Your sound is wonderful CuZ!!!! much love!!!!! Love your CuZ, Jinda!!!!
