As a child of the 70s, and specifically, a child whose mother listened to a radio station whose format was called “middle of the road” back then (but would have been called adult contemporary now), I heard quite a bit of music from Captain & Tennille. At the time, though, I had never heard of one of their early hits, “The Way I Want To Touch You”.
During the long, unplanned hiatus this blog took, George Duke passed away. As I understand it, George Duke was primarily a jazz musician, though he occasionally branched over to pop music and R&B. Most online bios of him will point to his work with Jean-Luc Ponty and Frank Zappa as helping to establish his name in the industry, so that gives you an idea of the diversity of his musical styles.
