Jazz Signature Series: An Evening with George Benson

George Benson is simply one of the greatest guitarists in jazz history. In a career that spans five decades, more than 30 recordings as a leader and ten Grammy Awards, NEA Jazz Master George Benson has used his jazz roots as the foundation for an engaging mix of pop, R&B and other shades that add up to a style that appeals to a broad mainstream audience. Along the way, he has also established himself as a formidable jazz singer – one whose biggest career hits have showcased his vocals as well as his guitar chops – but at the end of the day, Benson has always been and will always be a guitar player first and foremost.
