Reach For It – The Genius of George Duke, featuring Gina Foster on vocals
Reach For It celebrate the jazz funk groove of the master musician George Duke, an American musician, known as a keyboard pioneer, composer, singer and producer in both jazz and popular mainstream musical genres.
His legacy as a recording artist is vast, from Cannonball Adderley to Jean-Luc Ponty, Frank Zappa to Michael Jackson, to over 40 recordings as a solo artist. Simply put, George forever changed the landscape of jazz, r&b, funk, pop and classical music. Tracing his work from the Zappa years through a glittering, multi-album solo career, the heavyweight collaborations (Billy Cobham, Stanley Clarke) and Montreux triumphs, Dukey’s music provides the melodic soul enriched canvas for these outstanding players to express themselves.
On the night expect impeccable ensemble musicianship combined with friendly funk and some very groovy jazz – plus solos to take the breath away!
