I actually like how N'dugu puts his cymbals, it makes sense although it is strange to look at. I could never play them like that but I appreciate his take on minimal movement.
He has a theory. He says, with the cymbals in that position, the sound projects out to the audience much better. specially the ride cymbal in jazz settings.
it is the most economical motion , physically to move from drums, to cymbals, to drums..
