Though he hadn't abandoned his love of improvisation and complex arrangements, George Duke was sounding more like a mainstream R&B star by the time Don’t Let Go was released in 1978. During this period, Earth, Wind & Fire were one of the world's most popular groups—which was perfect timing for Duke, who'd spent several years developing a very similar musical aesthetic. Don’t Let Go showed the genius in his zone, turning out hard funk jams (“Dukey Stick”), feather-light soul ballads (“Starting Again”), and jazz-inflected pop songs (“Movin’ On,” “Morning Sun”) with equal aplomb. As he courted a broader pop-oriented audience, Duke continued to sneak in highly technical elements, as demonstrated by “We Give Our Love,” “The Future,” and the dizzying “Don’t Let Go.” A George Duke/Earth, Wind & Fire collaboration would have been the ideal partnership for this period. Even though that alliance never happened, listeners can get some idea of what it might have sounded like with “Yeah, We Going,” a tricky but utterly uplifting piece of Brazilian-infused pop-funk.
