Guitar man by George Benson( Recording )

19 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 265 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."
