R.I.P. George Duke

Duke

American jazz musician George Duke, a pioneering keyboardist who was hugely respected by his fans & frequent collaborators, Frank Zappa, Stanley Clarke, Miles Davis & Michael Jackson, has died at the age of 67.

George effortlessly bridged the gap between multiple genres, including jazz, funk and R&B, and released more than 30 solo albums.

He'll be equally fondly remembered by a new generation of hip hop musicians & producers, who have made him one of the most sampled of all jazz artists.

The music of Mr Summer Breezin' lives on!
