Tina Raymond is a drummer based in Los Angeles, CA. Gary Fukushima
writes in LA Weekly, “Musicians love her lithe brush and cymbal work, supported by an iron core of time and groove." A unique voice in the Los Angeles contemporary improvised music scene, Raymond blends traditional jazz vocabulary with African polyrhythm and classical percussion technique. She performs, adjudicates, and presents workshops world wide at venues, festivals, and conventions; and has shared the stage with many jazz luminaries including Bobby Bradford, Bennie Maupin, Emil Richards, Art Lande, and Vinny Golia. She can be heard on several original albums including Cathlene Pineda’s “A Weeks
Time" (Orenda), Jon Armstrong’s “Burnt Hibiscus" (Orenda), The Harold Trio (Edgetone), and will be releasing a trio record with Putter Smith and Art Lande in Spring 2017 entitled “Left Right Left"
