Reviews

"George Benson has quite a story to tell, and I'm sure his life will be an inspiration to many. He's a formidable talent as a guitarist and singer, and the stories surrounding his rise to fame are quite intriguing."--Herbie Hancock "For as long as I've known him--and we're talking over forty years--George Benson has demonstrated an uncanny ability to tell beautiful, exciting, interesting, musical stories with both his guitar and his singing, so it's no surprise that Benson: The Autobiography--a book that's been a long time coming--is full of beautiful, exciting, interesting, musical stories. To paraphrase George himself, this book will put you over the moon!"--Quincy Jones "Guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, entertainer: George Benson truly is a man of a thousand talents, each more wonderful than the last. And now you can add author to the list."--Al Jarreau "The funny, colorful stories in George's wonderful memoir made me want to go and play some guitar and bass songs with him, just like in the old days."--Ron Carter No Echo "A perfect gift for the jazzbo in your life." The New York City Jazz Record, October 2014 "This is a breezy tome that reads with the elegant ease and straightforward earnestness of one of its author's soulful guitar solos. Unsurprisingly, the jazz world's best-known crossover artist presents his life story in an accessible, conversational manner akin to the relaxed delivery of his many Grammy Award-garnering vocalizations...insightful...entertaining...Benson: The Autobiography is fun from start to finish." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 9/28/14 "One might have expected Mr. Benson to focus primarily on his decades of stardom, touching only briefly on his roots. Fortunately for jazz and for Pittsburgh, it's the other way around." Record Collector, December 2014 "An engaging read." Downbeat, December 2014 "It's a breezy memoir...The book has a friendly, conversational tone throughout...fans who want to learn more about the career of one of jazz's most popular artists will enjoy the ride." BackstageAxxess, 12/18/14 "Very well done and filled with amusing and informative anecdotes. Even if you don't know much about jazz, you'll come away with a greater sense and understanding of this important music."
