Recording information: RKM Studios, Brussels, Belgium (1980-1981); Westlake Audio, Los Angeles, CA (1980-1981). Arrangers: Jerry Hey; Johnny Mandel; Quincy Jones. An enormous commercial success, 1981's THE DUDE is a cross-cultural success blending jazz, Latin music, soul ballads, and straight pop into an admittedly slick but never over-produced or soulless stew. The album opens with a surprise; "Ai No Corrida" is a synthesizer-driven yet still funky Latin dance track written by Chaz Jankel of Ian Dury and the Blockheads, suggesting that unlike a lot of musicians his age, Quincy Jones kept his ears open to new music. The proto-rap title track accomplishes the same thing. The rest of the album is more conventional, with James Ingram and Patti Austin trading vocals on a smooth collection of tracks highlighted by the masterful love ballads "One Hundred Ways" and "Just Once," staples of adult-contemporary stations, and the haunting Stevie Wonder-penned instrumental "Velas." THE DUDE is an outstanding collection that was massively influential on the '80s R&B scene.
