Down Beat - p.693.5 stars out of 5 -- "It's great to hear producer extraordinaire George Duke bust out with the soul music he apparently grew up loving -- and with some social punch, as well."
JazzTimes - p.75"'Listen Baby' is a time-capsule R&B ballad straight from the '70s showcasing Duke's falsetto, and 'Right on Time' matches it in style but with Rachelle Ferrell's sweet soul matching Duke's for intensity."

Throughout his multi-decade career, George Duke has accompanied such luminaries as Frank Zappa and Jean-Luc Ponty, he's shone brightly on both acoustic and electric keyboards, and he's led or co-led cutting-edge and funky fusion bands. Without coming across as overtly old-school, DUKEY TREATS finds Duke revisiting assorted styles and approaches that helped make him a bestselling and enduring performer. Some tracks are fluid fusion jazz that highlight skillful musicianship; others pay clever but heartfelt homage to the creative soul and funk of Marvin Gaye, Prince, and the Gap Band. Vocals guests Jonathan Butler and Teena Marie help make this a set of tasty TREATS.
