Reach for It has more to offer from an R&B standpoint than a jazz standpoint, though the fusion it does contain is first rate - including the Latin-influenced "Hot Fire" and "Lemme at It" (an aggressive gem that's in a class with some of the s best work with the Billy Cobham/Duke Band). Reach's heavy R&B content resulted in Duke facing the same accusation as George Benson, Patrice Rushen and other improvisers who moved away from jazz in the '70s - that he was a sellout.

I was suspicious of this album, 'Reach for It', when it first came out, as much as I was enjoying EW&F and Parliament during their heyday, I felt for George Duke to head in that popular direction was pure money driven sell-out. I'm glad I re-visited this record and gave it a second chance.
