“George Benson is simply one of the greatest guitarists in jazz history,” writes music critic Richard S. Ginell, yet jazz guitar is only the beginning for George. A relentless shapeshifter, he’s equally imaginative playing pop, R&B and soul—and equally talented as a vocalist, composer and songwriter. No fan will want to miss this evening with the NEA Jazz Master, ten-time GRAMMY® winner and creator of too-many-to-count albums. Now in the seventh decade of his recording career (which started at age nine), George Benson continues to dazzle audiences around the world and right here at NJPAC.
