George Duke, the man who gave us classic and soulful music hits like "Shine On" and "Sweet Baby", has sadly passed away. A story by NPR reports on his passing and confirmation from his publicist, and he died at the age of 67.
As a fan of his music and legacy to soul and Jazz, I'm saddened by his passing, yet his music will surely live on in the minds and hearts of listeners worldwide.
As a tribute and remembrance, here's "Shine On" by the man himself.
R.I.P George Duke (1946-2013), you will be missed good sir.
