Best Of George Benson
Released: Jan 1976
Label: CBS ASSOCIATED
Superb overview of Benson's career-defining stint with CTI records shows his trend-setting arc, from Post Bop fusionist to Crossover artist to Smooth Jazz architect. There's not a bum track here, but "California Dreaming" and "The Gentle Rain" show that nobody knows how to build a solo and slowly notch up the intensity quite like Benson.
