Guitar man by George Benson ( Recording )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
George Benson brings his guitar to the forefront in his newest album Guitar Man. The 12 song collection includes a mix of jazz and pop standards - some in a combo setting and some solo, but all of them tied together seamlessly by Benson's soulful and exploratory signature sound. Lending a hand on this recording is a solid team made up of verterans and newcomers alike - pianist Joe Sample, keyboardist and musical director David Garfield, bassist Ben Williams and drummer Harvey Mason. Willism is one of the hottest up-and-coming new artists on the jazz scene. On Guitar Man, Benson's mastery of the guitar is demonstrated in a variety of styles and settings, all with legendary jazz roots. The opening track, 'Tenderly' is a solo guitar track that serves as a reminder that Benson is one guitar man with sufficient technical and interpretive skills to be a band unto himself. The second song is an intriguing rendition of Lennon and McCartney's "I Want To Hold Your Hand"
