    And now for something completely different - Cindy Blackman Santana and "Give the Drummer Some".

    Blackman Santana is an excellent jazz drummer, widely acknowledged as one of the very best. She's married to Carlos Santana. The album showcases her drumming, not to mention the guitar of Carlos along with the guitar of John McLaughlin.

    Carlos and McLaughlin are both in rock guitar mode, in McLaughlin's case reminiscent of his early Mahavishnu Orchestra phase; he subsequently went back to mainly jazzish and eastern styles. Although they don't play together here, the guitar sound harks back to their joint album "Love Devotion Surrender", done under the influence of Sri Chinmoy in the early 70s. Also featured is metal guitarist Vernon Reid, who duets on one track with Carlos.

    But the star feature here is Blackman Santana's drumming and her accomplished straightforward vocals. Rhythmic and melodic and jazzish.
