My Old Friend – Celebrating George Duke

CD (Item 730213) Concord, 2014 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

Al Jarreau pays tribute to the great George Duke – on a set that's got the same sort of collaborative vibe as some of Duke's classics from the 70s and 80s! Al's lead vocals are superb – and they're given some great jazzy touches with production by Stanley Clarke, Boney James, Marcus Miller, and John Burk – a warm gentle glide that not only has that old Jarreau magic hitting perfectly, just like the old days – but which also allows plenty of space for guest work from Gerald Albright, Dianne Reeves, Marcus Miller, Lalah Hathaway, Jeffrey Osborne, Kelly Price, Dr John, and Boney James! Duke himself also makes an appearance on one track – and most tracks are classics by George himself, but given a really fresh update here. Titles include "Someday", "My Old Friend", "Bring Me You", "You Touch My bRain", "Sombossa", "Sweet Baby", "Every Reason To Smile/Wings Of Love", and "Brazilian Love Afair/Up From The Sea It Arose & Ate Rio In One Swift Bite".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
