Album Review by Al Campbell

George Benson's two-disc Anthology from Rhino ultimately manages to encapsulate
Benson's career. These 32 tracks not only highlight the obligatory vocal pop
hits "Turn Your Love Around," "Give Me the Night," and "On Broadway," but dish
out a heavy dose of his early jazz recordings that followed in the footsteps of
Wes Montgomery, and his many appearances throughout the years with Brother Jack
Mcduff, Lonnie Smith, Hubert Laws, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Smith, Earl Klugh, and
the Count Basie Orchestra. If you're only accustomed to Benson's pop/jazz
crossover work, check out this definitive overview.

ON BROADWAY

Song Review by Jason Elias

This song proves that strongly written songs can keep coming back. Unbeknownst
to a lot of the record-buying public, "On Broadway" was a song that went through
many configurations. Songwriters Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil originally wrote it
with a girl group in mind. The producers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller liked it
for the Drifters, and after some tweaking, it became an early-'60s Brill
Building classic. Years later, George Benson, the leading jazz-pop artist,
tackled it for his 1978 live album, Weekend in LA. For his version, Benson
turned the song into a track that boasted his late-'70s band's unique sound. In
many respects, the lyrics fit Benson to a tee, especially the line, "I can play
this here guitar." That of course garnered a lot of applause. This track seemed
to feed off of the crowd's energy and probably wouldn't have worked as well as a
studio endeavor. Some may never be pleased, though. For some this is too close
to Vegas-y, but Benson's singing desires had long been in the making. To assuage
those who are worried, Benson also does some great riffing here. Keyboardist
Jorge Dalto does some great synthesizer lines, especially on the fade that gave
this song a sense of freshness and a special touch.

GIVE ME THE NIGHT

Song Review by Jason Elias

Released in mid-1980, this polished song caught the tail end of the disco era.
This is unabashed flash and glitz that producer Quincy Jones was becoming famous
for. For Benson, Jones didn't stray too far from his late-'70s, early-'80s
hitmaking recipe. This track is almost defiantly lush. Sonically, Jones put an
echo on Benson's guitar riffs on this track and throughout "Give Me the Night."
That gives this almost three-dimensional sound. Patti Austin is heard throughout
doing scat vocals through the verses. Speaking of vocals, this is arguably one
of Benson's most natural and non-ingratiating performances. Surprisingly,
guitarist Lee Ritenour also appears on this track and it's hard to discern where
all of the good riffs come from. Like many of the dance songs of the era, this
too is subtly romantic and mature. Rod Temperton, the song's writer, had also
done similar work for Michael Jackson's Off the Wall and Rufus and Chaka's
Masterjam. Bassist Abraham Labroiel and drummer John Robinson provide the cushy
rhythm here. "Give Me the Night" is one of those few songs that actually might
make a listener feel better for that 4:58.

TURN YOUR LOVE AROUND

Song Review by Ed Hogan

"Turn Your Love Around" was written for the purpose of adding new tracks to a
greatest-hits collection by George Benson. Warner Bros. executives approached
songwriter/producer Jay Graydon to write some songs for the multi-record set.
With two days before the deadline, Graydon got an idea while having dinner with
Steve Lukather, who came up with a verse. The bridge and other verses (and the
finished record's background vocals) were contributed by Bill Champlin. A couple
of days later, Graydon met Benson for the first time at Graydon's impressive
home studio and found an instant kinship; both were guitar players. The spunky
track featured one of the first Linn drum machines, which was programmed by Jeff
Porcaro with synth bass played by his Toto bandmate David Paich. Graydon played
guitar on the song. It also features one of Benson's most aggressive vocals,
though it's still in his favored smooth style. "Turn Your Love Around" hit
number one R&B and number five pop in early 1982.

George Benson Biography by Richard S. Ginell

George Benson is simply one of the greatest guitarists in jazz history, but he
is also an amazingly versatile musician, and that frustrates to no end critics
who would paint him into a narrow bop box. He can play in just about any style
-- from swing to bop to R&B to pop -- with supreme taste, a beautiful rounded
tone, terrific speed, a marvelous sense of logic in building solos, and, always,
an unquenchable urge to swing. His inspirations may have been Charlie Christian
and Wes Montgomery -- and he can do dead-on impressions of both -- but his style
is completely his own. Not only can he play lead brilliantly, he is also one of
the best rhythm guitarists around, supportive to soloists and a dangerous
swinger, particularly in a soul-jazz format. Yet Benson can also sing in a lush
soulful tenor with mannerisms similar to those of Stevie Wonder and Donny
Hathaway, and it is his voice that has proved to be more marketable to the
public than his guitar. Benson is the guitar-playing equivalent of Nat King Cole
-- a fantastic pianist whose smooth way with a pop vocal eventually eclipsed his
instrumental prowess in the marketplace -- but unlike Cole, Benson has been
granted enough time after his fling with the pop charts to reaffirm his jazz
guitar credentials, which he still does at his concerts.

Benson actually started out professionally as a singer, performing in nightclubs
at eight, recording four sides for RCA's X label in 1954, forming a rock band at
17 while using a guitar that his stepfather made for him. Exposure to records by
Christian, Montgomery, and Charlie Parker got him interested in jazz, and by
1962, the teenaged Benson was playing in Brother Jack McDuff's band. After
forming his own group in 1965, Benson became another of talent scout John
Hammond's major discoveries, recording two highly regarded albums of soul-jazz
and hard bop for Columbia and turning up on several records by others, including
Miles Davis' Miles in the Sky. He switched to Verve in 1967, and, shortly after
the death of Montgomery in June 1968, producer Creed Taylor began recording
Benson with larger ensembles on A&M (1968-1969) and big groups and all-star
combos on CTI (1971-1976).

While the A&M and CTI albums certainly earned their keep and made Benson a
guitar star in the jazz world, the mass market didn't catch on until he began to
emphasize vocals after signing with Warner Bros. in 1976. His first album for
Warner Bros., Breezin', became a Top Ten hit on the strength of its sole vocal
track, "This Masquerade," and this led to a string of hit albums in an
R&B-flavored pop mode, culminating with the Quincy Jones-produced Give Me the
Night. As the '80s wore on, though, Benson's albums became riddled with
commercial formulas and inferior material, with his guitar almost entirely
relegated to the background. Perhaps aware of the futility of chasing the charts
(after all, "This Masquerade" was a lucky accident), Benson reversed his field
late in the '80s to record a fine album of standards, Tenderly, and another with
the Basie band, his guitar now featured more prominently. His pop-flavored work
also improved noticeably in the '90s. Benson retains the ability to spring
surprises on his fans and critics, like his dazzlingly idiomatic TV appearance
and subsequent record date with Benny Goodman in 1975 in honor of John Hammond,
and his awesome command of the moment at several Playboy Jazz Festivals in the
1980s. His latter-day recordings include the 1998 effort Standing Together,
2000's Absolute Benson, 2001's All Blues, and 2004's Irreplaceable. Three songs
from 2006's Givin' It Up, recorded with Al Jarreau, were nominated for Grammy
Awards in separate categories.
