RIP Cynthia Robinson

If you saw Unsung 100 last night with ageless Donnie Simpson, you're probably like me and wondering where you were when the tributes were named.  Cynthia Robinson, trumpet player for Sly and the Family Stone and later Graham Central Station, lost her battle with cancer at age 71 (or 69, according to Rolling Stone).

This lady was truly underrated, as women and wind instruments are rare, especially in pop or soul music.  Check out her contributions at 3:25, as part one of the most underrated music act...period.
