After studying under MiLes Davis Quintet drummer Philly Joe Jones, Cyrille trained in traditional marching band percussion at Juilliard and the Hartnett School of Music. His compositions established his own style drawing predominantly from Bebop and Avant-garde jazz. His introduction to the radical free-jazz pianist Cecil Taylor in the mid-1960s brought him new acclaim and established him in the vanguard of jazz drumming, leading to collaborations with artists such as Mary Lou Williams, Oliver Lake, Jimmy Giuffre, Coleman Hawkins, Freddie Hubbard, and Rashaan Roland Kirk.

“Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing,” “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand),” “I’m Every Woman,” “Solid (As a Rock)” and other era-defining tunes were written by Valerie Simpson and her husband, the late Nickolas Ashford, in a songwriting career that began in 1964 when they wrote Ray Charles’ classic “Let’s Go Get Stoned.” A flurry of hits written for Motown stars Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell as well as Diana Ross & The Supremes followed, then a switch to the Warner Brothers label led to writing for Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Luther Vandross, and Whitney Houston among many others. Simultaneously with their songwriting, in the early 1970s, Simpson and her husband launched a performing career, letting their passion as a couple ignite their stage shows. With Ashford’s passing in 2011, Simpson continues her solo career, releasing her most recent CD in June 2012.
