Michael Manson is tremendously excited about the Thumpin' CD/DVD release. He is equally as excited about the possibility to walk the same path as his mentor and friend, the late, George Duke. In his words,"it is now my responsibility to use all that I have learned from George, to do all that I can, to make the best music I can, so that I continue the legacy and lineage that he has invested in me. So we move forward. As George would say, "we were there, and now we're here" so here we go".
My 1st live record. It features some new tracks and some reworking of some other tracks. On this recording, no special guests from my friends, but just a showcase of my band and I "getting it in". Most importantly and personally, for me is a tribute to my friend and mentor George Duke who I dedicate this project to.
