Al Jarreau - Al Jarreau And Stanley Clarke To Stage George Duke Tribute At Jazz Festival

Musicians Al Jarreau and Stanley Clarke are set to salute late jazz pianist George Duke with special performances at the 2014 Playboy Jazz Festival in Los Angeles.

Duke, who headlined last year's (13) event, lost his battle with leukaemia in August (13) and now organisers at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association have announced plans for tribute sets when the festival returns this spring (14).

Singer Jarreau, who first worked with the No Rhyme, No Reason star in the late 1960s, will team up with frequent Duke collaborator, bassist Clarke, to open the Hollywood Bowl bash on 14 June (14), while Duke's singer cousin Dianne Reeves is also part of the line-up.

Singer/guitarist George Benson and smooth jazz star Earl Klugh will take the stage on 15 June (14).
