George Duke: A Musical Tribute

As many of you have heard by now, our great jazz musician George Duke made his transition into the community of ancestors on Monday at age 67.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and close friends.

I used to go see George Duke in concert almost every year, mostly at Wolf Trap over in Virginia during the 1990's.  I loved those concerts, which typically featured George Duke along with Rachelle Ferrell, Jonathan Butler, and sometimes even Al Jarreau.  Those were some classic concerts.

I offer the clips below as a small tribute to his life and musical legacy.  In these clips we have George on keyboards, piano, and singing, and also - along with his band - in performance with Sheila E., Rachelle Ferrell and Jonathan Butler.

Thanks for all of your gifts, Mr. Duke.

May you be welcomed among the Ancestors...
