Jazz keyboard star Duke dies at 67

Grammy-winning jazz keyboard player and producer George Duke has died at the age of 67, according to a spokesman.

Duke, whose sound infused acoustic jazz, electronic jazz, funk, R&B and soul, died on Monday night in Los Angeles. He was being treated for chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.

During his 40-year-plus career, Duke appeared on a number of Frank Zappa's albums and played in the Don Ellis Orchestra and Cannonball Adderley's band.

He played keyboard on Michael Jackson's multi-platinum 1979 album Off the Wall, and was a producer for Miles Davis, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Dionne Warwick and Natalie Cole.

He also released more than 30 solo albums.

Duke's wife Corine died from cancer last year.
