Simply one of the greatest guitar players in jazz history. Whether playing lead of or as an exceptional rhythm guitarist, Benson fully delivers. He combines this skill with his lush soulful tenor vocal and the combination of singing and guitar playing takes him to some incredible places. From his early work as a member of Brother Jack McDuffs band to his own solo work, to being signed by legendary A&R man John Hammond and releasing soul-jazz albums on Columbia, before output on the legendary Verve and CTI labels.

He has ultimate accumulated 10 Grammy awards across his career and continues to record and perform to the very highest standards.
