https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_%22Ndugu%22_Chancler

[Ndugu is Swahili for “earth brother,” a family member or comrade.]


He was 65 years old,
it was  prostate cancer

I loved his Drums   & Roto Toms   &  Percussion  playing
He played with everyone.

Micheal Jackson "Billie Jean"   Produced by Quincy Jones

I was lucky to meet him at RFH London
back in 1988  when he was playing for Santana/ W. Shorter band.

I loved this drummer too Colin!
I have discovered him first on Patrice Rushen "Prelusion"
and then on many and many records between the 70's and 2000's.
Last month i bought a cd from the late George Duke "after hours"
and i really love his playing and sound on this one! R.I.P Mister Chancler.
Peace, Stef.

OMG!

I cannot believe it!! Oh! One
of my favorites!! I am crushed.



He really influenced me.

NO ONE used the rotos
as musically as he did.

There are so many ex-
amples of his great
sound and command.

Get these:

with George Duke:

Feel (1974)
The Aura Will Prevail (1975)
I Love the Blues, She Heard My Cry (1975)
Liberated Fantasies (1976)
The 1976 Solo Keyboard Album (1976)
From Me to You (1977)
Reach for It (1977)
Don't Let Go (1978)

with Jean-Luc Ponty (introducing Patrice Rushen):

Upon the Wings of Music

Thank you for your influence, Ndugu.

RIP, my Ndugu.

Yes, really sorry to hear that. Solid drummer I also was inspired, at the time, his high cymbal setup. Was impressive.

This photo was posted by Bryon Lee Miller
on his facebook page.

I think that Photo is maybe when Ndugu and Bryon Miller
were in the live USA Santana band in May 1976.
