Hearing Cindy Blackman play the drums is like a rapturous percussive tornado of sound. You just get swept away.
My first exposure to Cindy Blackman occurred when I first saw the video for, rock ‘n soul all-star Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way” in the early 90s. I had heard the song before I knew who was playing the drums and thought the track was explosive. I was immediately attracted to the sound of the drums in the song.
