George Duke, the legendary pianist and keyboardist, sadly passed away on, August 5, 2013 at the tender age of 67.  The world is a much less creative place...  and, he will be sorely missed by music lovers all over the world. 

As an American musician, he was known as a "keyboard pioneer", composer, singer and producer in both Jazz and Popular mainstream musical genres. Throughout his illustrious career he worked with numerous acclaimed artists, as arranger, music director, writer and co-writer, record producer and as a professor of music.

This piece, is sprinkled (liberally) with tidbits of some of "The Duke's" vast array of signature keyboard chords, riff's and progressions; of which any devotee of his music style will recognize throughout this arrangement (especially near the end). 

(Key of F-Major/D-Minor at 100 BPM).

Hope you find it enjoyable...

Griff

smooth jazz sounds with a wonderful arrangement. Typical of you ..... the clear sounds and good structure.
Very professional and beautiful.

I lost the words, but that's good so .... because this sound we must not let lick.

I know nothing about music. Only listened .. Using technology also makes possible for me to be able to make music.

  I am also into photography amateur.

I'm not here for stars score but coment with advice for improvement of my music.


at my coment on music of others, I remain honest. this must be mutual .

I give my voice just as public and not as someone who knows something from music.

 I'm open to all criticism. I want to learn something

Ho scritto la mia prima canzone nel 1991, ho smesso nel 1993 dopo aver realizzato un piccolo album casalingo e ho ripreso a scrivere e comporre nel 2011 dopo tanto tempo passato in tante occupazioni.

Fin da piccolo ho amato la canzone italiana da De Andrè a De Gregori, da Tenco a Branduardi, La New Wave ed il rock classico. Ringrazio la mia professoressa di musica delle scuole medie per avermi fatto ascoltare a 11 anni la musica classica che è la mia vera passione.

Hey,

Jazz ist zwar nicht ganz so mein Ding,

aber ich Denke Du hast es noch einigermaßen so harmonisch gehalten,

dass es fast jeder hören kann

Ist ja auch ein Genre für sich und der Zuhörer muss es lieben

LG Siggi

I really enjoyed this arrangement, one to really sit back and listen too. 5 stars all the way and on my favorites list.

Thanks for sharing it with us Griff.

What can I say? This is excelent!

Very interesting sounds (fantastic the warm guitar sound and the trumpet). Also the drum breakings are well cared.

The mix optimally balanced.
