This is our tribute to George Duke who passed away last week on the 5th of August 2013.
We saw George play live at the Jazz Cafe in London two years ago and it was a truly memorable night. His genius as a keyboardist, composer, singer and producer have had a profound influence on the world of jazz and jazz-funk and he's left us with a body of work to cherish.
This mix features a selection of our favourite George Duke compositions, a live performance of 'Reach For It' with Marcus Miller on bass, and a wonderful keys solo. Here's the tracklist. Long live The Duke.
