Default Re: Cindy Blackman

Cindy's a highly skilled drummer, that's for sure, but she when I've heard her play jazz she steals too many of Tony Williams' licks. Tony's my all-time favorite drummer and I certainly understand the appeal of his style, but jazz is about self-expression and coming up with something unique to yourself, not regurgitating someone else's stuff. OTOH, the last time I heard her play jazz on record was 10+ years ago; I trust and hope she's moved beyond the copycat stage since then.
