Is Music Necessary? (recent essay by George Duke, who passed away last night...)

I was waiting for part 2 of this GREAT essay by George Duke on the necessity of music education...

I guess I'll have to ask him about it in the afterlife...

R.I.P. George. I'll try to get everyone to at least read your essay, if not listen to a ton of your stuff...

1. Heart just sank.

The news hit like a hammer blow.

A great mind and heart have returned to the infinite.

Sure it's art, but music also is love.

9. I loved that guy.

I had the privilege of seeing George Duke in concert with Frank Zappa twice. My favorite Zappa music includes George Duke. I also got to see George Duke perform with Bill Cobham - what a treat!

This is one small example, albeit one from the studio. One of Frank's greatest orchestras.
