Georges Benson

The Cool Man

George Benson (born March 22, 1943, Pennsylvania) is an Grammy Award winning American musician, whose recording career began at the age of twenty-one as a jazz guitarist. He is also known as a pop, R&B, and scat singer. This one time child prodigy topped the Billboard 200 in 1976 with the triple-platinum album, Breezin'. He was also a major live attraction in the UK during the 1980s. Benson uses a rest-stroke picking technique very similar to that of gypsy jazz players such as Django Reinhardt.

Album: "Guitar man"

Guitar man
With this last album release, we meet again with pleasure the huge George Benson, still sailing between jazz and soul music, in live solo of the hit "Tenderly", with a combo sound in the Norah jones' hit "Don't know why" or with a soft symphonic orchestration of the tune "I want to hold your hand". At the age of 68 adn amoste 51 albums, congratulations and respect Mr Benson for your carreer that we wish you long and busy..
