This album, along with 'Uptown', are great!
This early G.B. is incredible for guitarists and jazz buffs,
and Ronnie Cuber adds SMOKING bari sax.
I could live without the vocal cut(all of me), and some of the tunes are somewhat dated, but all in all, this recording displays a side of George Benson that most people never know about. Sure, he was a pop star in the '80s, but this album solidifies his place in Jazz Guitar superstardom!

This is a jazz organ-guitar combo release with Lonnie Smith on organ and Ron Cuber on saxophone. It makes sense after "The Boss Guitar of George Benson" (1964) recorded with the Jack McDuff group.

Out of the ten released tracks, I loved the first two fast songs, ignored the third slow song, skipped the quick vocal on "All Of Me", and enjoyed listening to the six remaining tracks. So I rate this album as a keeper, because 80% of songs are good. But I actually like all the tracks, the easy guitar bossa nova is nice and the up-tempo vocal track is also enjoyable.

So I would recommend this to anyone who likes instrumental jazz organ-guitar combo (like Captain Jack McDuff) songs.

I am a jazz guitarist and I've bought a whole bunch of jazz guitar albums. This one is one of my favorites for pure bebop, smokin', freakin', maniac playing. Who can blame George for becoming a star singer? He has a great voice, and he made a gazllion bucks (which he wouldn't have playing guitar). Top pro jazz guitarists everywhere probably sighed a collective sigh of relief when he took that detour. What makes George special, for me, is that he has all the facility and harmonic sophistication of any jazz guitarist, but he also has a strong, funky, blues thread that permeates the air. Sometimes jazz guitar can be a bit too cerebral, but not if you have a deep sense of the blues, and a bad ass swagger in your playing. George is about as smokin' a jazz guitarist as you'll ever hear and this one is a hell of a lot of fun.

** I've already posted the exact same review under George's "It's Uptown" album because it's more of the same. Buy both.
