Rep: Jazz keyboardist George Duke dies at 67

NEW YORK (AP) - August 6, 2013

The representative said Duke died Monday night in Los Angeles. He was being treated for chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

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 multiplatinum 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.
