Event Details

The Genius Of George Duke: A celebration of the master musician, all-round genius and great guy – George Duke. Racing his work from the Zappa years though a glittering, multi-album solo career, the heavyweight collaborations, (Billy Cobham, Stanley Clarke) and Montreux triumphs, Dukey’s music provides the melodic canvas for these outstanding players to express themselves. Lots more Dukey links to great material for them to explore in the likes of Al Jarreau, Deniece Williams, Jill Scott, Teena Marie – even Michael Jackson! Expect impeccable ensemble musicianship combined with friendly funk and some very groovy jazz – plus solos to take the breath away. Carl Hudson – keyboards (PB Underground, Sister Sledge, Average White Band, Jocelyn Brown) Kim Murray – guitar (Joyce Sims, Leroy Burgess, Carmen Rodgers) John McKenzie – bass (David Bowie, Everything But The Girl, Lionel Richie, Dr. John) Geoff Dunn – drums (Van Morrison, Incognito, Joe Cocker, Donna Summer) and a very special guest, the master percussionist with Basement Jaxx – Oli Savill from Portugal, formerly with Pet Shop Boys, Roy Ayers, Sly & Robbie, Shakira. Expect fireworks!
