DESCRIPTION
Drummer Gayelynn McKinney -who you may know from her all-women jazz group Straight Ahead, or her recent work with Aretha Franklin- grew up in a magical place for musical development to be nurtured: the home of beloved Detroit pianist, composer, educator, and Tribe member Harold McKinney. 

McKinney's mother, the late Gwendolyn Shepherd McKinney, was an accomplished musician herself- an opera singer before "Dad sucked her into jazz," Gayelynn recalls mischievously. It was Gwendolyn that bought McKinney her first drumset at age 2.
