Half a century after beginning to record vocals along with the sound he drew out of his guitar, George Benson continues to roam the world, instrument in hand, to the tune of a hundred concerts a year. Both a legend of hard bop guitar and a singer of pop hits such as “Give Me the Night” and “Turn Your Love Around”, the former fellow traveler of Miles Davis, direct heir of Wes Montgomery, is an inescapable figure in the world of jazz into which he has successfully integrated like no one else R’n’B, rock, pop, funk and soul. With ten Grammy Awards to his credit, George Benson, 74, continues to be a productive and creative artist. After the success of his 35th album, Guitar Man, which appeared in 2011, he came out in 2013 with Inspiration, an homage to Nat King Cole, one of the artists who has guided his calling and one of his all-time favorite singers. Who knows what he has in store for the public at the Salle des Etoiles for his appearance at the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival? The best, by all means!
