George Duke - Dukey Treats (2008)

George Duke's debut for Heads Up International, "Dukey Treats," will be out on store shelves on Tuesday, Aug. 26. The album cover features chocolate miniatures, including a piano. It's so Ghiardelli Square. The veteran keyboardist/composer is offering up 12 treats, er tracks, on this release. Bassists Christian McBride and Byron Miller, percussionist Sheila E, drummer Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, guitarist Jef Lee Johnson (late Grover Washington, Jr. sideman) and trumpeter Michael "Patches" Stewart are three of the top-line guest stars on the album. The vocalists on the CD are an incredible array of talent, ranging from Rachelle Farrell to Howard Hewett, Teena Marie to Jonathan Butler to Josie James, Lynn Davis and Napoleon "Napi" Brock.
The opening track is a high-energy number called "Everyday Hero." "A Fonk Tail" pays homage to the Parliament/Funkadelic era of the 1970s. "Creepin'" is a remake of a song that originally appeared on Duke's 2002 BPM release "Face The Music." Duke's top keyboard solo, in my opinion, is on the closing track, "Images Of Us." As usual, it sounds like another winner from George Duke, the venerable master of piano-driven funk.

Finesoul ~ In my opinion i tought this was going to be another typical Funk/R&B Album but it sounds dope to say the least. Tracks like "I Tried To Tell You" & "Somebody Laid It On Us" reminiscence the old isley brothers songs. This is something worth checking out even if you think the cover paints a different picture. Last words... Grab it!
