This album has blown my mind wide open. Ive gotten heavy into jazz and fusion for the first time in my life, and out of everything Ive heard since i began the journey, this album is the best.Faces in Reflection pt. 1 in particular is the best thing ive heard in a very long time.

'George is humble about his albums and summed it up with statement: "As long as I can play what I want to and make reasonable money to live . . . I am happy. Making a hit isn't important".'

From the cover notes, by Marcia Blackman.

The hits of yesterday are the cliques of today; thanks to George's working philosophy, this joins a stack of material that will never get tired, old, or die, nor join the endless trawl of 'easy money popular classics' record labels resurrect year after year for the zombies. An incredible timeless masterpiece.

One of my favorite for many reasons: no guitar, sax, little vocals, amazingly tight trio, lots of synths and clavs, intense, laid back and funky all in less than 45minutes! Simply stated IMHO one of his best 70s albums hands down. The tone-juice he squeezes out of the ARP is damn unreal!

YH!!! One of my fav jazz records. <3 George Duke trio at its freshest and most ambitious. First time he really whipped out the synth and explored its possibilities (thanks to Zappa, who got him both to sing and to play synth, I've read!). Impressive result from a trio, too. Quite diverse record with some solo keys stuff (a more ambient psychedelic track and a almost classical sounding soulful piano piece), some vocal involvement (both lyrical and non-lyrical), some funky jazz fusion bits, and some really fun latin-y stuff with fancy percussion improvisation. Then there's the title composition which to me has a darker prog rock feeling to it, with some non-4/4 beat stuff.

A real journey that never stops mesmerizing, in my experience. It's so clear that the musicians are having real fun when playing together, with both interesting compositions and improvisations.
