George Duke adapted Brazilian ideas into his music from the start of his career, but his interest didn’t flourish until 1979’s Brazilian Love Affair. Like Duke’s own music, the Brazilian tradition was premised on an ability to sublimate complex and often difficult concepts into songs that appeared deceptively sunny and effortless. Few songs are as intricate as “Up from the Sea It Arose and Ate Rio in One Swift Bite,” and yet the performance isn't imposing but inviting. In addition, Duke intuitively connected to the communally uplifting effect of Brazilian music, a notion embodied by “Cravo e Canela.” With his panoply of synthesizers, Duke had long sought to translate the warmth of the sun and the refreshment of the ocean with his keyboards, and his sensory impressions were allowed to blossom on “Summer Breezin’,” “Love Reborn,” and “Ao Que Vai Nascer.” By this point Duke had so thoroughly assimilated funk and disco into his musical consciousness that “Brazilian Love Affair” and “Sugar Loaf Mountain” exist outside any genre as some of the best dance-pop songs of the late '70s.
