Brilliant talented multi-instrumentalist mainly known for his Rhodes and funk synth work from the 1970s.

Duke had a rare talent, the shear ability to understand melody, mood and texture using all the instruments at his disposal in order to convey his funky sometime mystic vision of music. The only comparison would be Mr. Zawinul of Weather Report.

I have one recommendation if I may, the 1976 George Duke solo keyboard album (Wounded Bird cd). Damn if you will not find an album of his with more mood swings that this one. From the brilliant funk fusion workout of Mr. McFreeze to the awe inspiring synthesizer orchestrations of Opera Tzina and the opening of gentle piano etchings of Pathways.

Mr. Duke was and still IS a legend even after his mortal coil was shed. Timeless, heartfelt and unquestionably albums in this maestros catalog. Start digging and you will be generously rewarded.....

Stumbled across odd songs on youtube and wondered if anybody could point me to albums that are more jazzy and dare I say less vocal(no disrespect, its just my preference)
Thanks,

George Duke...an exceptional artist whose contributions to Zappa's Mothers Of Invention made for some of Zappa's finest albums.

George Duke made some brilliant music of different styles. Ok some of it was hit and miss but thats true of any artist, i don't like every Earth Wind & Fire or Stevie Wonder song. i love George's singing voice as well as his amazing keys playing - the solo at the end of Brazilian Love Affair is superb. I find his music has a very peaceful vibe. i own almost all his albums, right up until he passed, and they all contain some fantastic moments. I saw him live a few times and one of them was the best gig i've ever attended. George was a true entertainer and one of the greats of jazz funk. Respect and R.I.P

George Duke undoubtedly made some good music, but by his own admission, a lot of it sucked. Check out his own reviews on his web site. He stops short of acknowledging selling out, but he comes close.

Too much of his stuff can only really be described as "party music," as in, let's pretend it's the 70s and we're having a party. Too much of it is sadly very good instrumental jazzy pop, but annoying-as-hell group vocals. Much of it has aged poorly. A good compilation for his Epic days is in order. The 2xCD "Essential" is OK, but includes too many of the tracks with vocals.

By contrast, the 4xCD of his MPS music is pretty good; quite mellow, but good. Similar to the stuff Lonnie Liston Smith was making.
