George Benson - Discografia.

George Benson (Pittsburgh, 22 de Março de 1943) é um guitarrista norte-americano de Smooth jazz. É considerado um dos maiores guitarristas da história da humanidade. 

Benson nasceu numa família de refinados músicos amadores. Aos seis anos já tinha começado a se apresentar ao público. Um ano depois, sua mãe se casou com um eletricista que também tocava guitarra de jazz amplificada. O jovem George implorou ao padrasto que lhe ensinasse a tocar.

Infelizmente, suas mãos eram pequenas demais para alcançar o instrumento em toda a sua extensão e ele acabou ganhando um ukulele (pequeno violão de quatro cordas). Mesmo assim, alguns anos mais tarde, Benson ganhou a sua primeira guitarra. Em 1953 - ainda com 10 - ele gravou o single "She Makes Me Mad" nos estúdios da RCA e mas tarde gravou "Sweet child o'mine" nos estúdios Walt Disney. 

Em 1963, Benson lança seu primeiro disco, "The New Boss Guitar Of George Benson", pelo selo Prestige, passando ainda por diversas gravadoras durante a década de 60. Até que em 1971, ele assina pela gravadora CTI, onde o produtor Creed Taylor tenta promover um novo estilo musical, fundindo jazz e pop. Pela CTI, Benson começa a crescer cada vez mais no mundo da música e em 1975, ele alcança seu primeiro sucesso com "Supership". A partir de 1976 Benson redirecionou sua carreira completamente deixando de lado o jazz e caminhando para o pop. 

Em 1977, George Benson gravou, pela primeira vez, um dos grandes sucessos de sua carreira: "The Greatest Love of All", um grande sucesso internacional que foi tema do filme "The Greatest", uma cinebiografia do grande lutador de boxe Muhammad Ali, lançado no mesmo ano. É George Benson o intérprete original desta canção, que, um ano depois, gravou novamente "The Greatest Love of All", dessa vez ao vivo, em seu álbum "Weekend in L.A.", lançado em 1978.

Duas das inúmeras coletâneas de George Benson se chamam "The Greatest Hits of All" (trocando o "Love" por "Hits"), ambas lançadas em 2003, em referência a esta linda canção, de autoria dos falecidos compositores Michael Masser e Linda Creed. 

Ao longo dos anos, Benson continuou gravando diversos sucessos, entre eles, "This Masquerade", "Breezin", "In Flight", "Nature Boy" e "On Broadway". Até que em 1980, seu disco "Give Me The Night" (produzido por Quincy Jones), conquista o Grammy, com uma suave e dançante combinação musical. Hits floresciam rapidamente na vida de George Benson nos anos 80, à medida que abandonava suas raízes no jazz em busca da acessibilidade do pop. Em 1981, "Turn Your Love Around" chegou ao top 30 inglês, enquanto que em 1982, "Never Give Up On A Good Thing" se saiu melhor ainda, chegando a 14ª posição. 

Em 2006, em uma parceria com o cantor Al Jarreau, lançou o álbum "Givin' It Up, um disco com um repertório variado de estilos abordados sempre com sua veia jazzistica. Este trabalho foi altamente reconhecido, tendo recebido Grammy e várias outras premiações. 

Em Setembro de 2013, no Brasil, Benson fez um show no palco Sunset do Rock In Rio no Rio de Janeiro, reeditando a parceria com o músico brasileiro Ivan Lins. Este show foi aclamado como um dos melhores do evento. 

Atualmente, George Benson se apresenta com um show em homenagem a Nat King Cole, um de seus grandes ídolos musicais. Texto: Wikipédia. Site Oficial.
