George Duke

~ Person


While Mr Duke performed with a number of jazz stars (Cannonball Adderley, Sonny Rollins, Don Ellis), his talent goes beyond jazz piano.
Experimenting with synthesizers in the 70's, he worked on a number of records with Frank Zappa, played in R&B formations and produced pop artists.
