5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd to None! November 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It's TRULY amazing how timeless the album truly is. I purchased this CD and the David Sanborn/Bob James collaboration within the same weekend. These two CD's STILL lead the charge in my Jazz collection. Mt. Airy Road, Dreamin' and Collaboration can change my mood no matter what's goes on! I WISH that these two would reprise their relationship and turn out another CD. Talk about a BEST SELLER! If you have NEVER listened to jazz, or never found an appreciation of the art form, pick up this CD. If you DON'T like what you hear.....oh man... TOP NOTCH!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Jazz Creation August 10, 2000
By Brian
Format:Audio CD
I want to express my gratitute to Messrs. Benson and Klugh for creating the perfect Jazz album. There has not been a better exhibition of virtuosity or improvisation on any album in the past 20 years. I was prompted to write this quick review because I recently saw Mr. Klugh in concert in NYC, and he performed Mt. Airy Road, my favorite song ever. I wish Mr. Benson could have been there.
For those who are not Jazz fans, whats great about this CD is that it really was one of the primary influences of the new school of "smooth jazz" musicians, and with the cool scat of George Benson, its really reminiscent of something from another undescribable genre that hasn't been invented yet.
Thats enough praise. Go buy this CD and you will enjoy it for the rest of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two plus Two Equals FIVE! June 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant CD and this 1989 release captures what Benson does best while ingratiating Klugh's baliwick of melody and mood listening!
Benson stirs the pot with incredible solos on many of the upbeat tunes while Klugh evidences he has a clue as to how to play tasteful yet bee-bop type solos--not just a balladeer as many think!
Neither artist competes for the lime-light but rather utilize their own unique styles to form a fashionably refreshing CD that is a must for ALL Benson and Klugh fans!
If you are a Benson fan, this CD will turn you on to Earl Klugh and similarly, ALL Klugh followers will be compelled to tune into Benson after listening to this CD only a few times.
Rarely does a CD have the variety this wonderful CD posits! A MUST hear to any ear!
Respectfully and always hangtough, Brian G. Jett

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting blend of Benson and Klugh December 15, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I went gaga when this album first came out in 1987, because I'm a big fan of both George Benson and Earl Klugh. I was a little disappointed when I first listened to it because of my high expectations. But after a while I latched onto about half of the tunes on the album. My favorites are "Mimosa," "Since You're Gone," and "Jamaica;" they all have a great blend of Benson's and Klugh's signature styles, along with the fascinating sound of an electric jazz guitar played with an acoustic guitar.

1.0 out of 5 stars bad tape, bad transfer, bad sound September 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Who knows? It might have been a good performance. The digital transfer must have come off some home tape equipment. The sound varies, the words are fuzzy. Only the crowd noise seems crisp (probably because that's were the tape was recorded). Avoid this cd. Ignore the misleading information on the cover. This cd never should have been made!

4.0 out of 5 stars OTIS SPANN'S COLABORATION July 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I will agree that this is not the best sounding recording I've ever heard. But a point needs to be made here. There are no other exsisting live recordings on Otis Spann from 1958! I am still willing to purchase any glimmer of brilliance that has been captured and made available to the public by this great artist. This recording is Otis Spann, Muddy Waters and Unknow Drummer working near the top of their golden period. If you like Muddy Waters and The Great Otis Spann, then this cd needs to be in your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back on CD at last May 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I bought Collabroation on vinyl when it first came out and have been looking for a CD of this recording for years.
Laurindo Almeida is in terrific form on this set. One Note Samba is a classic and is not to be missed by Bossa Nova fans.
This is one of the MJQ's best records and I highly recommend it.
I am writing this based on my experience with the album as the CD will not arrive for a few days.
As for Porgy and Bess, I am sure it is up to MJQ standards. Gotta go check the mailbox.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 Great Collabos in the Jazz Guitar genre April 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is something you cannot miss out if u luv jazz or actually you like other music asides jazz. Trust me I first checked this out @ a library near Fulton County, GA and then bought it on tape right after just to feel any difference to it. This is a good album to start for all GB and EK fans. Yeah George and Earl are the baddest man. You know what I'm talkin' about? They can play everything from jazz, to R&B, to pop, to Latin you name it. This is one the best favorites I own even tho its a CLASSIC. I'll luv 4 them to rejoin and do another duet on their next CD. My goodness, it's been so long. I luv every song that's is really bangin and making me felling in luv with it. I'm a avid Jazz listener since the age of 13 in '97 and still luvin' it today more than I do r&b, rap, hip-hop, gospel and other music which I like.
