Daylight Savings Time has come in for most of us here in the U.S. That means a lost hour of sleep; at least that is how I generally look at it. But it’s also a time for adjustment. Darker mornings at first, and more light in the evenings. Many people I talk to say it takes them a week to adjust to the time change. I certainly go looking for that lost hour of sleep for at least that long.
Today’s Smooth Jazz Sunday mix is sort of a dedication to one of my all-time favorite musicians, keyboardist George Duke. His career started back in the late 60s, where he worked with Al Jarreau. He also worked with Frank Zappa early on. By the mid-70s he was his on his own, releasing several acclaimed fusion albums before taking a turn toward funk and R&B by the time he signed with CBS/Epic Records in 1977. He also produced several notable R&B acts, such as Jeffrey Osborne and Deniece Williams.
Because of the change in time, I figure it’s as good a time as any to have a mix called “Late Night Sunday.” It also helps that Duke has a song with that very title. It’s full of softer tracks, some instrumental and some with vocals.
Songs in this playlist:
- “Laid Back Sunday”
- “Look What We Started Now”
- “Together As One”
- “Fill The Need”
- “I Tried To Tell You”
- “No One”
- “Until Sunrise”
All songs are by George Duke. If you can’t get all the songs to play, you can look up the ones that didn’t work.
Enjoy these fabulous tunes from one of my favorites, and I hope you adjust to Daylight Savings Time if you have it in your area. As always, thanks for reading and listening.
