A BRAZILIAN LOVE AFFAIR.
In 1977, master musician, recording artist and performer
George Duke had enjoyed his biggest sales success with
‘Reach For It,’ a track from the album “Don’t Let Go” and
had followed it in 1978 with ‘Dukey Stick’ from the bestselling
LP, “Don’t Let Go.”
On the back of his success, the multi-faceted Duke -
whose musical resume included stints with Frank Zappa,
Al Jarreau, Jean-Luc Ponty and Cannonball Adderley -
was ready to further explore his artistic vision and
persuaded Epic Records to get behind the recording of an
album focused on the music of Brazil.
The result was A BRAZILIAN LOVE AFFAIR, recorded partly
in Rio De Janeiro and partly in Los Angeles, using an allstar
cast of Brazilian musicians such as famed guitarist
Milton Nascimento, percussionist Airto and vocalist Flora
Purim alongside top U.S. session players like drummer
Ricky Lawson, bassist Byron Miller, trumpeter Jerry Hey,
percussionist Sheila E. and guitarist Roland Bautista.
With the classic funky and infectious title track becoming
a rare groove dance winner in the UK, the album A
BRAZILIAN LOVE AFFAIR became a favourite among
Duke’s audience worldwide as well as one of Duke’s own
stated personal musical highlights.
Standouts include ‘Summer Breezin,’’ ‘Brazilian Sugar’
‘Sugar Loaf Mountain,’ and ‘Up From The Sea...’ This
expanded edition includes the single version of the title
track. Notes by renowned writer Jeff Lorez includes
quotes about the project from George Duke.
