Soul In Your Jazz...George Benson

Ibanez George Benson model GB10

I was fortunate enough to see George Benson in Chicago,doing the Breezin album,with Phil Upchurch playing rythm and Harvey Mason on drums,what a show.George Benson is about my favorite jazz player,especially his earlier playing days,before the Breezin days.But,then,he added a soulfullness that jazz had not heard yet!My fav album is Cookin,wow.....And he carried the Wes Montgomeery octave into a new generation and add a 5th in the middle!And of course he has a guitar endorsement with Ibanez,his own models....the GB10,GB15 and the GB20. Check his soulful playing out and check out the 3/4 GB models by Ibanez.Every Ibanez guitar i have ever played has had great feeling necks on them,and i have played many.
