A musical send-off for one of the greatest drummers ever.

When Leon “Ndugu” Chancler passed away earlier this year, the world lost one of the greatest drummers in music. For over 20 years, Ndugu was an essential and much beloved member of the SJW faculty; for this special show, keyboardist, composer, and SJW faculty artist Bennett Paster will direct a musical tribute to the late master, featuring performances by Ndugu’s close friend and associate, keyboardist Patrice Rushen, and many of the fantastic musicians on the SJW faculty. Join us afterward for a special reception honoring Ndugu.
