George Duke

The concert of George Duke and Billy Cobham in Montreux 1976 became a classic on record. There's movie footage to. Experience the band at their height. John Scofield is there and we get a chance to see former Weather Report bass player Alphonso Johnson performing on Chapman stick. Let me say one thing about Johnson: he remains underrated by most for his work with Weather Report. Which is a shame.

The world has lost another of his finest musicians: George Duke. Mr. Duke was an outstanding keyboard player, composer and producer sharing stage and studio space with Frank Zappa, Miles Davis (Amandla album), Michael Jackson and Stanley Clarke. George Duke died at the age of 67 in Los Angeles. Goodbye George and thanks for the gift of music.
