George Duke. 1946 - 2013
Today we received the very sad news of the passing of a true legend, hero and giant of jazz, particularly jazz fusion, as it is generally known.
Apart from prolific work with the likes of Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, Cannonball Adderley and Michael Jackson, George Duke left an enormous discography of incredible albums. Albums that introduced jazz to R&B fans, and vice versa, and introduced both to Brazilian music. Music that cultivated a widespread love for the soulful sounds of his famous synths, such as the ARP Odyssey and Prophet 5. Music that inspired generation after generation of artists and producers from disco and house to techno and hip hop; and has been sampled heavily, by the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, Daft Punk and MF Doom.
Here’s a favourite song of ours, also covered back in 2011 by Thundercat.
George Duke - For Love (I Come Your Friend)

Last but not least, in 2011, Brainfeeder shared a mix put together by renowned photographer, B+, of music from Duke’s peak recording period; inspired by the George Duke obsession that had fuelled the recording of Thundercat’s debut album. This mix serves not only as a brilliant introduction to Duke’s timeless classics, but also had long time fans such as us scribbling down LP titles. The download link is below. Enjoy!
We Love George Duke !
