Video Spot: George Benson

The other day I was going through a box of vinyl in my garage that I thought I had lost forever. As I flipped through dozens of outstanding albums I came across the 1974 CTI recording by George Benson titled Bad Benson. The opening track on that recording is a brilliant and funky interpretation of Paul Desmond’s “Take Five.” It is one of my all time favorite Benson tracks and it remarkably still sounds great. Having never seen George blow on the tune in person, I took to YouTube with Benson Fever and found an exciting live version taken just two years after Bad Benson had been released. Enjoy – JV
