George Benson – The Art of Jazz Guitar
Oct 26 2015
Eight-time Grammy-winner George Benson covers chord substitutions, turnarounds, the Wes Montgomery style, and more. He demonstrates his signature scat-style singing on the groundbreaking This Masquerade and soloing over the famous On Broadway vamp. Also included are several virtuoso solo jazz and blues guitar performances by Benson himself – further proof, if it were needed, of his total mastery of jazz guitar.
What George talks about, and shows, is how to find sounds. There are no licks to copy, no scales to run, but it’s excellent in showing how a musician finds sounds. The rest is up to you. And George is a hell of a nice guy and loves the guitar, and music, and that comes shining out. This will not teach you how to play, but will get you thinking. For intermediate++ players and Benson fans in general.
