One of the most versatile players in jazz is George Duke. Whether he is playing in a straight ahead trio context or backing a vocalist or playing funk or producing, George is just one of those musical genius types that can comfortably fit in anywhere.
Although he has had great success in a lot of crossover projects, I think he shines brightest in a standard trio environment with piano, bass and drums. As you will read in this Q&A, his story is fascinating and he is a truly one of the most unique and positive musical souls you will ever meet. - JV
