25 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Sir Douglas on January 11, 2000
Format: Audio CD
This 1964 session spotlights a young and unknown George Benson testing his mettle in Brother Jack McDuff's working combo of the time. George was only in his early 20s, and still in need of some seasoning, yet this album provides early clues of future guitar greatness--quicksilver lines, soulful phrasing, and an unerring sense of groove. George was clearly inspired by the deep organ swing of McDuff and the fiery presence of Jimmy Forrest on tenor sax. This is meat-and-potatoes soul-jazz in the best sense of the term, minus the heavy-handed production and distracting arrangements that would mar George's more commercial work of the 70s and 80s. There are no vocals here, just pure jazz and blues guitar in a great setting, unadulterated. Worth getting.

This one's an underrated classic. It's pure 60's soul. The balance of instrumentation is superb. Jack Mcduff takes not only a back seat, but a seat in the waaay back of the bus. He adds flavor here and there on piano and organ but this is mostly tenor and guitar. The melodies are colorful, yet solid, and rooted in blues changes that give a shout out to wes M. style soul. The one ballad, easy living is absolutely beautiful. I wish the album had a few more recordings on it because they had a solid groove going.
Give it a go, you won't regret it!

My wife is a big George Benson fan and I have been lukewarm on him, knowing only his more commercial recordings of the 1970s and 1980s.

But on a whim I decided to buy this early Benson recording for her and I promptly fell in love with it.

Be forewarned - it is nothing like the George Benson everyone knows.

The is a pure, basic, classic Jazz recording with no vocals. Very relaxing, very well put together, and very much worth a spot on your Jazz shelf.

Format: Audio CD
This was the first studio album by George Benson. It is a little more simple than his other following albums, It's Uptown and The Cookbook. It has a bit of a big band sound to it. The licks are simpler. But that's not to say that this album is anything to skip. It's up there with Uptown and Cookbook. I personally feel that this album has a slower feel to it at times. It still has its fair share of fast pieces though. It makes great lounge music or music to have in the background at a social event. I love this album as much as It's Uptown and Cookbook.

The bonus track is great too! "My Three Sons" is a fast paced melody that is catchy and was worthy of being on the original cut of the album.
