Guitar maestro George Benson began his career as a sideman for Hammond organist Brother Jack McDuff. After a period of recording fusion albums, Benson turned towards R&B. His hits include “Give me the Night”, “On Broadway” and “Shiver”. Benson’s music emits warmth and security. His disco tunes include “Love X Love” and “Turn Your Love Around”. His most recent album is called “Inspiration” and is a tribute to Nat King Cole.
