To say you’ve played in Weather Report, with Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul, is saying something indeed; only a handful of musicians can do so. Two of them, Ndugu Chancler and Alphonso Johnson, join forces with keyboard wizard Patrice Rushen to compose the Ndugu Trio. Collectively, these three have performed or recorded with a mind-boggling array of music icons including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, Freddie Hubbard, George Benson, George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Hubert Laws, Lee Ritenour, Jean Luc Ponty, Santana, Prince, Phil Collins, Al Jarreau, Billy Cobham and scores of others. Among their accomplishments, each band member has led various solo album projects. Rushen is also a noted film and TV composer, while Ndugu has a strong profile in jazz education as faculty at the USC Thornton School of Music, as well as Stanford Jazz Workshop’s Jazz Camp.
