Stream: Al Jarreau - "My Old Friend: Celebrating George Duke" on Concord Records

One legendary musician pays homage to another as Al Jarreau assembles an all-star cast of musicians for what sounds like will be a powerful and moving tribute to the great George Duke. Enjoy the smooth and inviting sound inspired by George and check out what Al has to say about the project below

"As many of you know, my good friend, jazz legend George Duke passed away in 2013. While we miss him each and every day, his wonderful music and contagious positive disposition lives on.

With the help of a few friends (such as Gerald Albright, Stanley Clarke, Lalah Hathaway, Boney James, Marcus Miller, Jeffrey Osborne and Dianne Reeves) I’ve been able to do the only thing I feel I can do to show George our love & admiration…. Create a tribute album to his wonderful work. This is the spot you can snag your copy and gain access to special updates and album previews as we release it to the world.

So go on…. Find the package that suits you and join us as we lay out our hearts on this album for George.

- Al"
