GEORGE DUKE - FACES IN REFECTION



When Faces in Reflection came out in 1974, the fusion revolution was in full swing and George Duke was among its most exciting keyboardists so while Duke was doing some singing, instrumental jazz-fusion was still his main focus. This excellent, mostly instrumental LP finds Duke forming a trio with bassist John Heard and drummer Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, and the keyboardist really lets loose on such jazz/rock/funk gems as "Psychosomatic Dung," "The Opening," and "North Beach." Meanwhile, Duke's interest in Brazilian music is underscored by a lively interpretation of Milton Nascimento's "Maria Tres Filhos." Though Duke sings on the haunting "Faces in Reflection, No. 2," it's important to stress that this is an instrumental album first and foremost. Faces in Reflection is not only the product of what was a very creative period for Duke it's also the product of what was a highly creative period for jazz in general .
Another great release from MPS thats never made it to CD.
