George Benson is perhaps best known for his later work in the pop/r&b genre, where he found the most success. Most people don't realize that in the 60's to mid-70's, this cat was one badass motherfucker who could roll. Like all great men in history, George Benson grew up in Pittsburgh, PA where, by the age of 20, he was heavily involved in the local jazz scene. From there Benson befriended Wes Montgomery, and shortly after became a bandleader. Benson combined a post-bop direction with organ and conga beats, as well as a hard-edged blues sensibility to his unique playing. Although not as experimental as other post-bop pioneers, Benson utilized pop aesthetics to perform songs that will cum in your ear pussies for days on end. Imagine Herbie Hancock, Wes Montgomery, and the Allman Brothers combined to create one sound: orgasmic. That is George Benson in the 60's. Orgasmic. « hide
