Drummer Cindy Blackman Performs with Trio and Quartet in Philly, DC and New York

Cindy has been touted as "one of the hottest drummers in the business, by the Star-Gazette and is regarded as one of the top drummers in the world.

    NEW YORK, NY, October 04, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cindy Blackman is not only one of contemporary music's most creative drummers but also a passionate witness to the role model that Tony Williams provided to her. In her first recording as a leader since 2005's double CD.

Music for the New Millennium, Blackman pays homage to the Jazz-Rock legend with Another Lifetime (Four Quarters Entertainment), a tour de force collection of many of Williams' songs from his seminal group Lifetime, which he helmed from 1969-1976.

Born in Ohio and raised in Connecticut, Cindy began her musical career as a New York street performer. She spent three semesters at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and also studied with legendary teacher Alan Dawson. Cindy moved to New York City in the 80's and since that time, she has been seen and heard by millions of people all over the world performing with her own group and during her 15 year stint with retro funk rocker Lenny Kravitz, since 1993. In 1998, Cindy released her first drumming instructional video entitled, "Multiplicity" through Warner Brothers publications.

"Some drummers act, some react. Some keep time, others create it. Cindy Blackman is among the few who can...." said the late Mike Zwerin of the International Herald Tribune. Talking Drum said, "You can be assured that Ms. Blackman will be around for a long time to come.." She is thunder. She is fire. She is energy. She is passion. She is Cindy Blackman. According to Cindy herself, "The life of music is bigger than all of us."
