  • Two Diverse Styles come together on one incredible Album

    By Brother Confucius
    Two fantatic guitarists of two diverse styles come together on one incredible album of musical bliss. George Benson is the Jazz guitarist who can swing & sing whilst scatting and bringing momentous Jazz guitar chops of momentous fortitude. Earl Klugh is the Classical guitarist whose fine-tuned master of the highly disciplined classical guitar style is displayed with sophisticated exquisiteness. Together they collaborate on this album that has both memorable melodies and musical exuberance. George Benson does not sing on this album. Instead he goes strictly instrumental in a welcomed, swinging approach. He magnificently confirms his master of Jazz guitar illustrated by his bebop-driven chops over the bass lines of Marcus Miller and the chordal-structure of Earl Klugh's playing. Speaking of Earl, the native of Detroit exemplifies fine Classical guitar interwoven into catchy Jazz rhythms. Another reviewer mentioned that the best tunes on the album are "Mt. Airy Road", "Dreamin", and Benson's own composition "Mimosa." I agree with this assessment as these three tunes are the backbone of the album and are the highlights that bring a relaxed yet grooving flavor to the album. These elements give an overall sense of relaxation with a momentous sensation for the listener. An honorable mention is Earl Klugh's "Brazilian Stomp" which is a fast-paced tune that gives the feeling of relaxing on the beach while having a pina colada. Overall the album is a virtuous and harmonious offering from both George Benson and Earl Klugh. It is a worthy addition to any music appreciators collection. A solid 5 Stars!!!
  • The three best tracks on this album are...

    By Jazzmoca
    ...Mimosa, Dreamin' & Mt. Airy Road... If you ever drive down Mt. Airy Road outside philly while listening to this tune, you'll understand how awesome it is to hear while driving. Dreamin' is just a good track for hearing two really awesome jazz guitar players go at it and have a lot of fun while doing it. It is subtle but it has a good groove to it. Mimosa's entrance builds the excitement into the guitar you that feel of being in a somewhat fancy restaurant or a night on the town, but not in the midst of the excitement, but rather indulged in sophistication and feeling good. If you don't buy the album, then don't pass over these 3 tracks as single pick-up's
