Setembro, the Brazilian wedding song written by Ivan Lins, appeared on Quincy Jone’s “Back On The Block” and of course later in the John Singleton film “Boys ‘n the Hood”. Soul and jazz legend George Duke is the classic multi-talented music hyphenate: composer/musician/producer/entrepreneur and more. And he’s an amazingly thoughtful, articulate and generous man who shared some interesting insights on the influence of Brazilian music. George was one of the first to go to Brazil and record with his 1979 release A Brazilian Love Affair. Bravo! It is an wonderful cd–one of his very best–and very much worth a listen!
