The Musicians' Olympus

This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Ndugu Chancler played in different soundtracks, also appearing in the Steven Spielberg movie The Color Purple (1985), along with Paulinho Da Costa and others.

He was also lecturer for the Jazz Department of the University of Southern California. Leon Chancler sadly passed on away on February 3rd, 2018 due to prostate cancer. He was 65. What a great player. Now it seems he´s more known for being the drummer in Michael Jackson´s ´Billie Jean´ song, but I appreciate much more his work with Santana, Jean-Luc Ponty, Herbie Hancock, George Duke and so many great albums where he excelled. Rest in peace.
