The Incredible Jazz Guitar of GEORGE BENSON in concert


George Benson (born March 22, 1943)[3] is a ten-time Grammy Award-winning American musician and singer-songwriter. He began his professional career at twenty-one, as a jazz guitarist. Benson uses a rest-stroke picking technique similar to that of gypsy jazz players such as Django Reinhardt. A former child prodigy, Benson first came to prominence in the 1960s, playing soul jazz with Jack McDuff and others.
He then launched a successful solo career, alternating between jazz, pop, R&B singing, and scat singing. His album Breezin' was certified triple-platinum on the Billboard 200 chart in 1976.[4] His concerts were well attended through the 1980s, and he still has a large following.[4] He has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
