Remember Ndugu Concert at Stanford Jazz Festival
We all missed Ndugu Chancler at the Stanford Jazz Workshop this year. He had a huge impact in the Institution, in the faculty and in every student that had the privilege to be on his masterclasses.
This year the faculty came together to honor Ndugu Chancler and all he represents for us at Stanford. The night was amazing, there was so much joy celebrating his life. Everyone made great music and there was an inspiration behind every song, with a greater sense of community as we would hear Ndugu's voice and words about music and life on the speakers connecting the program.
This show was organized by Bennett Paster and Patrice Rushen was featured as a long time collaborator and friend to Ndugu. It was beautiful.
A night I'll never forget celebrating the person, musician, educator, creative, legend we will always remember.
