We enthusiastically announce Cindy Blackman Santana will perform at JIMMY’S JAZZ & BLUES CLUB on Thursday October 14 at 7:30 PM. To watch and listen to Cindy at Jimmy’s with our new state-of-the-art production, sound & lighting technologies is exciting!! Cindy Blackman Santana is as known for the nuances and colors she brings to her beats and fills as she is for the sheer power of her soulful playing. “Some drummers act, some react. Some keep time, others create it. Cindy Blackman Santana is among the few who can,” writes Mike Zwerin of the INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE. In reviewing Cindy Blackman Santana’s album “Works on Canvas” the JAZZ TIMES said this, “…proceeds like an impressionistic suite in which she not only functions as the main rhythmic engine of the music, but also as a magnificent colorist…’Works on Canvas’ is an amazing portrait of one of this generation’s most colorful drummers.”
