Re: Cindy Blackman
seriously, after watching the clip on the drummerworld page from her new DVD, i was shocked at what a lack of individuality she has.
I AM NOT SAYING SHE CAN'T play. surely, if you could rip off Tony Williams note for note, you must have some chops, but come on! and TW is my #1 fav.
The sound of her snare and cymbals ripped right outta EMERGENCY!
she is a great player and teacher, but i can't listen to her and take it seriously.
this is a personal rant, not meant to bash or influece others.
