5.0 out of 5 stars X = 5 stars, April 10, 2012

This review is from: X Factor (Audio CD)
With George Duke being the producer and handling the bulk of arrangements on this 1978 release, this is basically the George Duke Band with it usual members, Byron Miller (Bass) and Ndugu (drums & percussion) along with a couple guest appearances by Airto (percussion), Patrice Rushen and Greg Phillinganes (keyboards) and Hubert Laws (flute).
You take the jazz/funk the Duke Band was producing at the time, give the lead solos to violinist Michael White with smart arrangements so he doesn't overstay his welcome, and you get the X Factor, which is a good thing, a very good thing. If you're familiar with Dukes " Don't Let Go ", well meet it's twin

This was one of my favorite "traveling music" records back in the day...produced by George Duke with some of his ensemble providing back-up. If you like Reach for It this is for you. Michael White's violin adds an exotic flavor to the accelerated r&b/jazz stylings that make up most of the songs. I could do with less vocals and more music but this still rocks for me.
