Product Description

Acknowledged as one of the most talented multi-faceted music men of the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and beyond, California-born George’s career began working with a diverse range of musicians including such pioneers as Cannonball Adderley and Frank Zappa before he started his own solo recording journey in the mid-’70s. Within a year of George’s impressive stint with Epic, he enjoyed a first U.S. chart breakthrough with 1977’s ‘Reach For It’, continuing with the funk classic, ‘Dukey Stick’ in 1978. George’s acclaimed 1979 project’Brazilian Love Affair’ spawned a UK charted hit with the title track. Further success came with his teaming with super-bassist Stanley Clarke resulting in George’s biggest U.S. hit, 1981’s ‘Sweet Baby’. Compiled by David Nathan, this sumptuous 2-cd follows the SoulMusic Records’ reissues of several of George’s best-selling Epic albums; stellar notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring include quotes from Duke cohorts Ndugu Chancler and Byron Miller and his cousin, Dianne Reeves; great remastering by James Bragg highlights the distinctive funk/jazz & R&B work
