George Duke has always been a musician who refused to limit himself to one style. I Love the Blues, She Heard My Cry music CDs Prior to I Love The Blues, which came out in 1975, Duke excelled in contexts both acoustic and electric, in straight-ahead jazz, arty rock (with Frank Zappa), and fusion. I Love the Blues, She Heard My Cry songs Blues finds him fronting an all-star lineup (Lee Ritenour, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Flora Purim) in a set of fierce blues, soul/R&B, and rock songs (lead vocals by Duke) amid some nifty jazz-fusion instrumentals. I Love the Blues, She Heard My Cry album This set is recommended to listeners as musically diverse as Duke himself. (cduniverse)
