George Duke is one of the reasons why I am a musician today. His music touched me at an early age and stuck with me throughout my adult life. I am grateful for his musical awareness and inspiration over the years. The world of music has lost a gentle giant, a keyboard pioneer, composer, singer and producer. Mr. Duke thanks for the great music…particularly jazz.
You were the true Funk Master…Your music is my therapy and I will continue to Reach For It. You have truly weaved my musical dreams!!!...Your music is infused in my soul. God called you home because he wants you to get funky!!!..Rest In Peace Mr. George Duke…God Bless the Duke family.
