He switched to electric piano and toured with Parliarment/Funkadellic in the early ’70s. He later became an original member of Lenny White’s Twennynine (“Peanut Butter”), a key piece in Jamaica Queens’ ’70s’ jazz-funk explosion. A deal with GRP/Arista birthed the solo LP Don Blackman (1982), a good set saddled by poor promotion.
His extensive resumé includes Kurtis Blow sessions and singing “Haboglabotrin” on Bernard Wright’s ‘Nard album. A fixture in New York studios, he has worked on sessions for a long list of artists including Nagee, David Sanborn, and Roy Ayers. And his composition “Live to Kick It” graced Tu-Pac’s R U Still Down (Remember Me) release.
