The follow-up to his highly acclaimed album The Aura Will Prevail, George Duke continues his experimentation on this release by combining various musical styles, performed by a diverse range of musicians including fellow members of Frank Zappa's band. Also appearing on the album are such impressive names as Lee Ritenour, guitarist Daryl Stuermer (before he joined Phil Collins), George Johnson from The Brothers Johnson, Johnny "Guitar" Watson and Flora Purim. Duke said he was even more intent on orchestrating his music on this album and introduced new sounds like marimbas and violin.

"This was the most diverse record I had recorded to date. It was totally against the rules, but you know, I was young, adamant and black! I wanted to do it my way. This record was recorded at the end of my tenure with Zappa. The Zappa influence is very evident on certain tracks, but my funk and R&B nature comes out as well. I used to call my music multistylistic. I grew up listening to all kinds of music and I didn't see why I should be kept in a box musically."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
