Album Review

No, you're not in Creed Taylor country yet, but you might as well be, for many of the ingredients that would garnish Benson's albums with Taylor are already present in this often enjoyable prototype. The immediate goal was to groom Benson as the next Wes Montgomery (who was about to leave Verve) — and so he covers hit tunes of the day ("Sunny," "Along Comes Mary," "Groovin'"), playing either with a big band plus voices or a neat quintet anchored by Herbie Hancock, and the sound is contoured to give his guitar a warm mellow ambience. But the eclectic Benson is his own man, as his infectious repeated-interval rhythm trademark tells us on his self-composed title track, and despite Tom McIntosh's mostly lame arrangements, George's work is always tasty and irresistibly melodic. ~ Richard S. Ginell, Rovi

My ol' time favorite tasty album

It has got to be my number one George Benson album!!! I once lost it, and it killed me!! Oh to hear all those tunes, each and every one of them is just so perfectly tuned, soulful, delicious, marvelous, touching, incredible, jazzy and tasty! This is Benson doing what he is good at! There are no vocals, but he just makes his guitar sing to your soul. Try the tunes and I promise you will want it for your Sunday Roast and not just on Sundays!!

Blessed with supreme taste, a beautiful, rounded guitar tone, terrific speed, a marvelous sense of logic in building solos, and, always, an unquenchable urge to swing, Benson's inspirations may have been Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery, but his style is completely his own. Not only...
