Cynthia Robinson, trumpet player...

...and "original member of the seminal psychedelic-funk-soul group Sly and the Family Stone," died at age 71.

In addition to supplying trumpet riffs, Ms. Robinson chipped in with vocals. At the beginning of “Dance to the Music,” the group’s first hit, she can be heard shouting, “Get on up and dance to the music!”
