This CD mixes fusion, funk and soul masterfully!

It was one of the best shows that I've ever seen to date (I saw the show in January of 1977).

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how top notch it really is.

If he was truly trying to "Reach For It," then Mr. Duke succeeded! Along with many others, I just knew that Ndugu Chancleer was Bootsy Collins helping George Duke out!! Boy, were we mistaken!! I got to see his show "live" at the Roxy. The man (and his band) sounded just like the album...he didn't miss a beat, which proved to me then that he understood what his "Pop" crowd expected. At the same time however, he would slide in a little "improvisation" which showed us his jazz roots and skills without upsetting the balance of the song. There was a young lady with a "skull cap" on in the band who showed that she was a capable percussionist (turned out it was Sheila E. of later Pop fame!). Ndugu Chancleer showed himself to be a mighty, mighty percussionist! To this day, I just sit in awe of the bassist (Byron Miller?) who totally owned the Bass solo in "Reach for It." It was one of the best shows that I've ever seen to date (I saw the show in January of 1977).

Man, I miss those days! If you don't own a copy, get yourself one (they're cheap now...). Five Stars for Mr. Duke and "Reach for It!"

and it's been a good relationship ever since! George Duke is a music legend in my mind and Reach for it was the start.

Get this cd, it is Duke at his finest. If you know about this man and this band, you probably already have this album. It is definititive of George's music, and full of fun and funk and feeling.

George Duke is a true master musician, arranger, writer, and producer. This hot bisquit runs the gamut from r&b to funk to latin. Don't miss this one because it is one hot album.

There's a lot more going on here than just first rate funk. The Latin tinged improvisations (one featuring a young Sheila E.) on this album are terrific. And the space age Moog on several tracks is mind blowing.

And yes, the pimped up funk on this record is fantastic.

But please don't just listen to this album as a "dated" relic; blow the dust off of it and give it another listen. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how top notch it really is.

As a teenager I came to enjoy all types and forms of jazz and jazz artists. I love the rhythm brought by the instruments played by the artists which are masters.
