About George Benson:
George Benson entered the music business as a child singer. Never considering himself just a guitar player, he nonetheless honed his jazz chops playing with organist Jack McDuff and Lonnie Smith in the 1960s. His solo and side work with Columbia, Verve, and CTI helped Benson develop the most distinguished guitar tone in the jazz world. But that was never enough. In 1975, Benson signed with Warner Brothers and became a bona fide singer and pop star—incidentally helping to father smooth jazz along the way.
