Customer Reviews


I can't believe I'm the first to review this album. This brings back so many good memories and it's extremely hard to believe it was 29 years ago! There is little music being put out anymore. Glad to know I have this to listen to.

His Best Work!

I can't believe that this album is not one of the top 5 G.B 's best sellers here in iTunes.Simply this is a great album at least 8 of the 10 tracks are wonderful tracks. This album was produced by the great Quincy Jones and that is way this album is solid, sure in addition to the pure talent of G.B.

"Off The Wall" for Grownups

Coming off the heels of Michael Jackson's mega-selling OFF THE WALL, producer Quincy Jones applies the same formula on "jazz guitarist turned pop/r&b crooner" George Benson. Songwriter Rod Tempeton reappears on five songs including the hit singles "Give Me The Night," "Love Times Love" and the Grammy-winning instrumental "Off Broadway". Another Jones cronie, Patti Austin, duets with Benson on a slick remake of the jazz standard "Moody's Mood". Like OFF THE WALL, Side One of the vinyl version has four songs and is mostly uptempo, while side two's six songs take a more mellow approach, especially on the album's other too-brief instrumental "Dinorah Dinorah".

Although GIVE ME THE NIGHT has it's highspots, the end result makes George Benson sound like a guest artist on a Quincy Jones album. And the single version of the title track is much better than the long, drawn-out version presented here.

Simply one of the greatest guitarists in jazz history, George Benson is an amazingly versatile musician, whose adept skills find him crossing easily between straight-ahead jazz, smooth jazz, and contemporary R&B. 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.
