George Duke has certainly made an indelible imprint on jazz and pop music over the past forty years. He’s collaborated with some of the most prominent figures in the industry. A producer since the 1980s, he has crafted scores of fine recordings – many of them GRAMMY winners – for artists representing almost every corner of the contemporary American music landscape.
I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Duke in Foxy’s studios several years ago. Like George I began playing musical instruments at a very early age and was delighted to pick his brain and talk about several genres of music. It was one of the most rewarding experiences in my career.
Check out the single “Trippin” from the upcoming DreamWeaver album and look for a July 16, 2013 release date. Duke calls DreamWeaver his “most honest album in several years.
