But instrumental jazz-fusion was still his primary focus, and he had yet to be played extensively on any of the genres' stations. When The Aura Will Prevail came out that year, no one bought the LP for its occasional R&B vocal - the main attraction was Duke's keyboard playing. Fools" is a melancholy soul ballad that finds him singing lead and predicts what was to come on R&B-oriented releases like Don't Let Go (1978) and Master of the Game (1979), but it isn't typical of the album on the whole.

Info for The Aura Will Prevail. MPS head Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer discovered 20 year old George Duke by chance during a concert in San Francisco in 1966. A long partnership developed out of this unexpected meeting, topped off by a series of albums that Duke recorded for MPS during his Zappa phase. George Duke The scope of -producer George Duke's imprint on jazz and pop music over the past forty years is almost impossible to calculate. He has collaborated with some of the most prominent figures in the industry. Released in 1980,the album included vocals by Flora Purim and Milton Nascimento, and percussion by Airto Moreira. Love Affair stoodin marked contrast to the other jazz/funk styled albums he was cutting at the time. Duke's reputation as a skilled producer was also gathering steam.

The song was written by both Zappa and pianist George Duke, who was born just thirty miles south of where I live in San Rafael, California. Opening up the second side of "The Aura Will Prevail" is "Malibu", which features a bit more of a Latin influence, with some exotic percussion and wordless vocals supported by a rather nice-sounding bassline. For some reason this style reminded me a little bit of one of the songs that came off of Camel's debut album, even though I attributed that connection to being a total fluke.

The Aura Will Prevail is the sixth studio album by American keyboardist George Duke. It was released in 1975 through MPS Records. Recording sessions took place at Paramount Recording Studios in Hollywood, California. The album features contributions from Alphonso Johnson, Leon "Ndugu" Chancler and Airto Moreira. Duke played various keyboard instruments on the album, including Rhodes electric piano, Wurlitzer electric piano, Hohner clavinet, ARP Odyssey, ARP String Ensemble, Mutron Phaser, Mutron Dual Phaser, minimoog, moog bass and various pedalboards

Aura is to be approached with caution, because there are a few objectionable tunes that breaks the album’s overall fusion cohesiveness, but then again these tracks are numerous enough to start questioning if this album fusion label is the correct one. I wonder if George would gathered the JR/F tracks on one side and glued the other weirdies together on the flipside might not have been wiser choice, than this strange mix and un-match mess.

The Aura Will Prevail.
