The New Boss Guitar Of George Benson
Released: Jan 1964
Label: Concord Records
Benson's debut as a solo artist is a rough and tumble Soul Jazz affair that's miles away from his later Smooth Jazz work yet Benson's firm grasp of R&B and pop is evident even here. Benson's old boss Jack McDuff on organ and the chops are tasty all around. The CD reissue adds a smoking cover of the "My Three Sons" theme.
