When Leon “Ndugu” Chancler passed away earlier this year, the world lost one of the greatest drummers in music. His contributions to pop and funk are legendary, from Michael Jackson’s iconic “Billy Jean” and records with Lionel Richie and Donna Summer, to the deeply funky “Let It Whip” by the Dazz Band and equally grooving collaborations with keyboardist George Duke. His jazz credentials are no less impressive, including projects with Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Jean-Luc Ponty, Weather Report, and many others. For over 20 years, Ndugu was an essential and much beloved member of the SJW faculty, sharing his vast experience generously with all SJW students. For this special show, keyboardist, composer, and SJW faculty artist Bennett Paster will direct a musical tribute to the late master, featuring performances by many of the musicians on the SJW faculty who played with and were influenced by Ndugu.
