RIP Legendary Jazz Keyboardist George Duke

Legendary Jazz Keyboardist George Duke passed away yesterday at 67 years old after a battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Duke was unable to make music for a while after his wife died of cancer a little over a year ago, but finally released DreamWeaver just earlier this month.

    “Feel”, “The Aura will Prevail”, “I love the Blues, she heard my Cry”. All the albums he produced for Flora Purim & Airto.

    The funky clav, the soaring mini-moog, and ARP oddesey, creamy

    Rhodes. The master of so many styles, just listen to him with

    Frank Zappa.
