Lenard (Lenny) Fleming was born in New York. He jumped out with music in his blood and bones. The son of phenomenal percussionist Leopoldo Fleming, and the grandson of legendary latin bassist Leo Fleming, it was inevitable that he play. Taught the rudiments of percussion at an early age by his father, Lenny explored other instruments as he grew. While attending J.H.S. 125 in the Bronx, he studied saxophone while in the school band. His instructor saw fit to place him in the District 8 All Star Band. This allowed him to go to London, England and perform.
