George Benson is a ten Grammy Award winning American musician, whose production career began at the age of twenty-one as a jazz guitarist.
Benson first came to prominence in the 1960s playing soul jazz with the likes of Jack McDuff. Benson then launched a successful solo career, alternating between jazz, pop, R&B singing, and scat singing.
In the 70s he surged to cross-over stardom with the triple-platinum album Breezin.’ A track from the album, “This Masquerade,” was the first song in history to reach #1 on the jazz, R&B, and pop charts. The decade also brought chart busters “Nature Boy,” “Give Me The Night,” and “Turn Your Love Around.”
Since then Benson has consolidated his global reputation as one of the giants of music - no matter what the genre.
