Released:
Label: Legacy Recordings
A sleek dancefloor platter that still holds plenty of appeal for jazz fans, Good King Bad finds Benson paring down his gritty bop guitar style to the funky essentials. The usual CTI suspects are here: the Brecker Bros., Steve Gadd on drums, Joe Farrell on flute, Phil Upchurch on rhythm guitar and David Sanborn on alto sax. The title track won a Grammy; "Shell of a Man" and a cover of Vince Guaraldi's "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" showcase Benson's way of building up graceful ballads until they take flight as rhythm tunes.
