georged

To celebrate his induction into The SoulMusic Hall Of Fame as a Legacy Award recipient, we’ve gone into the SoulMusic.com vaults to present this audio interview.  In January 2011, SoulMusic.com contributor Jeff Lorez caught up with legendary George Duke. He asked the multi-faceted music man to share seven tracks from his extensive catalogue as an artist, producer and songwriter as well as choosing three tracks by others.  The session went so well…we split into it two parts!

Pt. 1 – George’s favoutites from his own catalogue…

Pt. 2 – George’s choices from recordings by others…
