Grammy-winning musician appears on jazz legend’s ‘On the Corner’ and wrote and produced Madonna’s “Borderline”
Jazz guitarist and music producer Reggie Lucas has died, as his daughter Lisa Lucas confirmed earlier today. Perhaps best known for his work with Miles Davis and producing the majority of Madonna’s self-titled debut album.
When asked about how he felt about the impact of Madonna, Lucas said, “I think everybody involved in the arts has a tendency to take themselves a little bit too seriously. I made a great record, and a lot of people liked it. It sold a lot of copies and launched careers and created opportunities for people. And that’s what you want to do. That is supposed to be the outcome of your good work. ”
