Home / Biography / Meeting


“The Conference” was formed in 1983 when manufacturers George Wein and Darelen Chean come up with “The Playboy Superstars from the 80’s” for your year’s Playboy Jazz Celebration; the all-star group contains keyboardist Patrice Rushen, drummer Ndugu Chancler, electrical bassist Alphonso Johnson and tenor-saxophonist Ernie W. Because the four music artists had similar passions, rooted in jazz but extremely open up towards funk and r&b, they will have since stayed jointly on the part-time basis as a normal music group. Rushen and Chancler, who’ve known one another for quite some time, also often group together for membership gigs within the L.A. region. The Meeting provides recorded models for GRP and Hip Bop. The last mentioned Compact disc (from 1995) provides Freddie “Prepared Freddie” Washington in Johnson’s put on bass.
