GEORGE BENSON GIBLET GRAVY 12 INCH LP VINYL 33RPM JAZZ 2013 NEW
George Benson is one of the modern eraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s truly great guitarists, who when he sticks to playing the guitar has few rivals. This is very much Wes Montgomery territory, but Benson is no Montgomery copyist; he creates complex tapestries with his rhythmic melody lines that give him a unique sound. Most of the tracks are covers, as was popular at the time, but the title track and Ã¢â‚¬Å“Low Down And DirtyÃ¢â‚¬Â are written by Benson. Photographer and producer Esmond Edwards had worked at Prestige Records prior to taking over from Creed Taylor at Verve and he had an impressive list of credits to his name, including Miles Davis.
