1 stars Oh George, what have they done to you?

Being a jazz or fusion musician in the age of corporate record labels can be very difficult. Just look at what Warner Brothers did to the once great George Duke. The former Zappa sideman has now been reduced to an album of bland, albeit well produced, pseudo soul drivel.

Admittedly, he can still play a good keyboard solo, but the songs are, save one track, all that mindless pap that gets airplay on those "smooth jazz" radio stations. In other words, completely forgettable.

I did mention that there was a good track on this disk. Bus Tours Is actually a wild jam of a song. But one song cannot save this miserable album.

Sorry, one star. Maybe if you can find this in a cut-out bin for lessthan a dollar, it's worth it for the one track (mine was a free promo). Otherwise, don't bother.
