George Duke is a fantastically talented pianist / keyboard player. He can match chops with anybody out there.
However, most of his output in the last thirty years has been very, very commercial, leaning heavily towards the soul / pop market, and not his jazz roots.
So this album is a gem in the mostly mire - George Duke playing as we used to know and love him, going full throttle on the Moog synth (Ten Mile Jog), or exuberantly tickling the ivories (My Piano) or showing his humerious side (Creeping).
Aside from a few background vocals, this is instrumental fare, a lot of it sounds like it was recorded live, but to an extremely high standard, I'm impressed at just how good the 320K MP3 sounds, even through a top end hi-fi.
If you are any kind of Duke fan, get this.
