"Tell it like it is" Benson's style is that of a true jazz player finding popularity in pop without "selling out." He is known for his silky clear guitar leads which often feature harmonized complexities. His vocals could be characterized as a masculine Stevie Wonder. While there are many quality jazz guitarist and solid R&B vocalists, unique to Benson's sound is the "scat-lead." As featured in Benson's version of "On Broadway," Benson will vocalize in unison with his guitar lead. As a jazz improvisario makes their instrument "talk," so Benson's doubly makes his two instruments "talk" simultaneously.
We met George Benson on July 22nd 2008 in Lucerne at the Blue Balls Festival after his show in the wonderful Konzertsaal at the KKL. He was so kind to sign the following guitars:
