Guitar Man by George Benson

This CD is beyond laid back.
The release party for it should have been on an elevator.

Basic Benson

Tastefully produced; no overbearing electronic gimmicks or funky attempts for crossover airplay. Just jazzy (small group) treatments of classic songs.

Lots of Personality

I got to see George in Austin this last Saturday, and he was kind enough to play us a bunch of selections from this album. Fingerlero is jam-packed full of energy, and my favorite track on the album. You can tell that he really enjoyed recording this album. He told us he just recorded "what [he] felt like" playing, and you can tell, from the way he treats "I want to hold your hand," which you wouldn't even realize is the Beatles song at first listen, to the delicate treatment of "Don't Know Why." Not only is he choosing an interesting selection of pieces to cover, he's infusing them all with a unique Benson flavor.
