In 1971, long before George Benson got the idea to sing more regularly, he recorded BLUE HORIZON, a straight-ahead soul-jazz session. Here, the main focus is on Benson's guitar playing, which is sharp and lively throughout. His band on this recording includes two ex-Miles Davis band-members, Ron Carter (bass) and Jack DeJohnette (drums), both of whom play with forceful finesse.
