Another Lifetime

by Cindy Blackman

This CD arrived this morning from the US, and I’m listening to it for the third time already. It has some amazing musicians on it, including Mike Stern and Joe Lovano. I liked all the songs except 40 Years of Innovation (which is just one minute long, so it didn’t annoy me much). Perhaps the best is Love Song, a duet of Lovano on tenor sax and Blackman on drums.

Another Lifetime is Blackman’s tribute to Tony Williams (the Lifetime of the title refers to his legendary jazz-rock band). For me, it is much more than a tribute album. I’ve discovered a fantastic drummer and bandleader.
