I'm not certain that that many people are familiar with this early MPS release, because it hasn't been that widely available, as many of his later releases have. Recorded while he still was working with Frank Zappa, this recording also is far-off the more commercial attemps, he later on would release.

The sound on this trio recording is very nice and the playing is fresh and spontanious. The opening song comes across almost as a free jam, and all in all many of the tracks sounds improvised.

He is joined by Ndugu Chandler on drums and John Heard on bass, and the only thing one properly could miss from this recording, is some more solid material/compositions. But when that is said, I must add that everything comes out very musically and there is certainly a lot of great playing from the hands of Mr. Duke, both on Rhodes, acoustic piano and not the least on synthesizers as well.

Highly recommended.

As a fan of Seventies Jazz-Funk and Jazz-Fusion - I must admit to lack of knowledge on this one - and it's a gem I've been missing out on.

This July 2008 CD remaster on Verve Originals B0011514-02 (Barcode 600753095591) is a straightforward reissue of "Faces In Reflection" - a rare Jazz-Fusion album by George Duke originally released in 1974 in Europe and the USA on MPS Records/BASF (it had no British release). It's also part of Universal's "Originals" CD series. All of these discs are remastered, housed in card digipaks with original artwork reproduced on the outer and inner flap (usually no booklet) and are pitched at mid-price. The series is extensive - over 120 titles covering Jazz, Funk, Soul, Latin, Big Bands and Fusion albums across the multinational's vast array of labels. But the big news for fans here is the superlative new sound...

KEVIN REEVES handled the mastering and it's a fabulous job done - the sound quality is `so' good. Being Fusion and filled with keyboard flourishes and jazzy drum patterns - the remastering needed to enhance the playing - and it has. "Piano Solo No. 1+2" for instance has slight hiss - but it's not dampened out nor compressed - it's allowed to breath - and lovely for it. You really hear the musicianship. JOHN HEARD is the Bass player and NDUGU the Drummer - all other instruments are by GEORGE DUKE.

3. Piano Solo No. 1+2

The MPS remaster has restored the pitch & tempo to the original vinyl release: the early CD release of this album was mastered one tone plus several cents flat...
The album is, of course, fantastic. RIP George.
