B1E Jazz Experience presents an all-star line of the best jazz artists in the industry -Stanley Clark, Al Jarreau, Joe Sample, Randy Crawford, Gerald Albright and Norman Brown – live in concert, on Friday, October 25, 2013, 8:00 p.m. at the Paramount Theater in Oakland, California. These stellar Jazz all-stars will deliver outstanding performances in celebration of the life of GEORGE DUKE. This internationally recognized artist line-up has never performed on “one stage” and they will definitely not leave an empty seat in the house! This will, by far, be a historical and life changing concert. George Duke, who trail blazed almost a half a century career in jazz music, was one of the world’s most prolific jazz legends. From leading a jazz trio with a young Al Jarreau during his formative years to working with Jean-Luc Ponty, afforded Duke his first recording contract with MPS Records and his first exposure to Europe. When the journey continued with his incredible work with Adderley, drummer Billy Cobham, and Frank Zappa, to his cherished stream of jazz-funk records in the ‟70s, Duke found his mark not only in his eclecticism, but also his signature approach to the synthesizer. On July 16, 2013, Duke released DreamWeaver, which he called his “most honest album in several years.” The album has an illustrious cast of musicians including bassists Christian McBride and Stanley Clarke; singers Teena Marie, Lalah Hathaway, Rachelle

Ferrell, and Jeffrey Osborne; guitarist Paul Jackson, Jr. and Jef Lee Johnson.

On Friday, October 25th, an all-star, A-Team line-up, Stanley Clarke, Al Jarreau, Randy Crawford, Norman Brown, Gerald Alright and Norman Brown, will take the audience on a magical journey of the jazz music which made George Duke so memorable and beloved by every ethnicity and culture. The special tribute performance by Stanley Clarke is a „must-see, must-hear‟, once in a lifetime experience, that will pull the melodic heartstrings of everyone in the Paramount Theater. This concert will be a SELL-OUT!
