Benson, George & Al Jarreau
Concord, 2006, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Swing
O’s Notes: Take a few of Benson’s hits, a few of Jarreau’s and these two icons can’t help but make good music together. They’ve got all of the right stuff: great tone, harmony and feel with their voices and with George on guitar. Some of the best are “Mornin'”, “Long Come Tutu” with Benson showing us he still is among the best guitarists on the planet, and “Summer Breeze”. There are excellent guest appearances from Jill Scott, Patti Austin and Paul McCartney. And of course Al does his vocal thing and we end up with a winner!
