The Funk of Ndugu….

If you’ve read ANY liner notes for R&B albums in the 70’s, you know the name Ndugu…

pronounced “en-doo-goo”…..LOL, what a cool and funky name…

Well, if you got a funk name like Ndugu, that means you gotta be funky…and Ndugu is funky, indeed…

If you check out my George Duke Primer blog below…you will see how funky Ndgugu is for yrself…

Leon “Ndugu” Chancler is one of the top drummers in the music business…

Ndugu

He has played with so many people, its stupid….but to the general public, he’s best known for his vocals on his homeboy George Duke’s monster funk jams, Reach For It and Dukey Stick…

If you aint hip, head down to my Dukey blog and check him in action in the live videos for those songs….

Even if you are completely ignorant of Ndugu, you STILL love his drumming…

you’ve rocked to those drums forever…LOL

But, dig….In my research for my Dukey Blog,  I came across this:

Ndugu & The Chocolate Jam Co. – Take Some Time (Do I Make You Feel Better – Epic/CBS Records, 1980)

This funky ballad is by Ndugu’s band, The Chocolate Jam Co. who recorded two albums in 1979 and 1980, respectively…

So this is what ya boy Scorp is gon’ do for you…

I’ma give y’all a lil Ndugu today…


Take in the funk and enjoy.

Peace,
