Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing including insert. George Duke (1946-2013) was an American musician, a keyboard pioneer, composer, singer, and producer in Jazz and R&B. He recorded A Brazilian Love Affair (1980) in Rio with great singers such as Flora Purim, Milton Nascimento and Airto Moreira. Although not the return to instrumental Jazz some hoped it would be, this heartfelt effort does contain it's share of Jazz-influenced material. From a Jazz standpoint, the most noteworthy songs include 'Cravo e Canela', the charming 'Brazilian Sugar', 'Love Reborn', and 'Up from the Sea It Arose and Ate Rio in One Swift Bite'. The album is clearly a labor of love from start to finish.
