I love the stuff that everyone shares - anything to broaden my horizons (though my son said of HiddenX's stuff 'that sounds way too 70s … and not in a cool Disco sort of way' … )

Anyway, jazz fusion pioneer George Duke just died on the 5th at 67, he played with Zappa for most of the 70s after some seminal jazz-rock work, and played with everyone from Miles Davis to Michael Jackson and had some R&B hits as well as some cool jazz stuff.

His wife died last year and he has had health issues with cancer. I know he just came out of severe depression following her death, didn't know the cancer had come back.

His new album Dreamweaver came out 3 weeks ago and he was gettign ready to support it … sad.
