GEORGE BENSON
AN UNFORGETTABLE TRIBUTE TO NAT KING COLE

Legendary guitarist/vocalist revisits the music of Nat King Cole and adds some of
his own amazing hits for good measure!

It takes a legend to successfully pay homage to one and thats just what ten-time Grammy Award-winner George Benson demonstrates during his elegant performance of An Unforgettable Tribute to Nat King Cole. Bensons tribute, which kicked off with a capacity crowd in February, 2008, at L.A.s Walt Disney Concert Hall, has thus far, been a resounding success. The Los Angeles Times said Bensons connection with Cole was not based on simulations but on the ability of two fine jazz artists to successfully, and musically, reach out to a beyond-genre audience.

Benson and his ensemble, joined by a six-piece choir and a 28-piece string orchestra conducted by Randy Waldman (conductor for Barbara Streisand, Josh Groban and others), pays tribute spanning classic Nat King Cole hits with lush orchestrations and, at times, delightful be-bop King Cole Trio interpretations. With precision and innovation, Benson delivers Cole favorites such as Mona Lisa, Stardust, Route 66, Looking Back, Were Too Young, and Nature Boy, along with all the greatest of Nats many hits, including a bring-the-house-down performance of Unforgettable,

The show concludes with Bensons incomparable combo joining him on stage for a set of vintage Benson hits such as Give Me The Night, Breezin, Moodys Mood For Love, and On Broadway.
