I couldn't exclude a George Benson song on my 70s/80s inspired album MAKE IT A SUNNY DAY (Drycastle Records), so I also made an alternate version for the 7 FREE Song Series. What to say, one of my absolute heroes, the extension of West Montgomery, my absolute favorite electric player alive today, George Benson is the man. I saw him live three times and I would go back to watch him in a heartbeat. Another song where Maurizio "Bozorius" Bozzi is playing the electric bass, definitely a bit of an experiment but just thought it could work, hopefully it does.
From Wikipedia:
Weekend in L.A. is a 1978 live album by jazz/soul guitarist George Benson. The album was recorded live at the West Hollywood Roxy Theater. It was certified Platinum by the RIAA.
George Benson (born March 22, 1943)[3] is a ten-time Grammy Award-winning American musician and singer-songwriter. He began his professional career at twenty-one, as a jazz guitarist. Benson uses a rest-stroke picking technique similar to that of gypsy jazz players such as Django Reinhardt.
A former child prodigy, Benson first came to prominence in the 1960s, playing soul jazz with Jack McDuff and others. He then launched a successful solo career, alternating between jazz, pop, R&B singing, and scat singing. His album Breezin' was certified triple-platinum on the Billboard 200 chart in 1976.[4] His concerts were well attended through the 1980s, and still has a large following.[4] He has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
