George Duke (San Rafael, Kalifornia, 1946. január 12.Los Angeles, 2013. augusztus 5. [1]) funk-dzsessz zongorista és énekes, a szintetizátor-játék egyik úttörője. A The Jean-Luc Ponty Experience with the George Duke Trio című lemezzel szerzett nevet magának, de széles körű elismerést vívott ki szóló-karrierje is, ahogy másokkal való együttműködései is, akik közül kiemelhető Frank Zappa.

Karrierje[szerkesztés | forrásszöveg szerkesztése]

Duke a Tamalpais középiskolába járt Mill Valley-ben, mielőtt a San Franciscói konzervatóriumban lediplomázott 1967-ben. Cannonball Adderley együttesében játszott, majd Jean-Luc Ponty King Kong című lemezének felvételén ismerkedett meg Frank Zappával, akihez először 1970-ben csatlakozott, majd később 1973 és 75 között volt állandó zenésztársa a Mothersben.

Zappánál olyan klasszikus lemezeken játszott (és határozta meg alapvetően azok karakterét), mint a Chunga's Revenge, a 200 Motels, a Waka/Jawaka, a The Grand Wazoo, az Apostrophe (’), a One Size Fits All, a Bongo Fury és a Roxy & Elsewhere.

Zappa után szólólemezeket adott ki, producerként is dolgozott, de írt két dalt Miles Davis albumaira is ("Backyard Ritual" a Tutu albumon, 1986; "Cobra" az Amandla albumon, 1989).

Többször is járt Magyarországon, utoljára 2010 augusztusában a Sziget Fesztivál jazz-színpadán játszott.
