George Benson Biography

A ten-time Grammy Award winner, singer-songwriter George Benson has produced 36 full-length studio albums and 50 singles throughout an illustrious career. Born on March 22nd 1943, George Benson began his career when he was recognized as a child prodigy at the age of 10 when he recorded and released his first single “She Makes Me Mad”, whilst under the name Little Georgie. In his adolescence, he developed his talent, honing his craft as a songwriter and a musician. When he was 21 he released an album called “The New Boss Guitar”. His next album was “It’s Uptown” with his very own quartet. He was later employed to play for Miles Davis in the 1960s to play guitar on “Paraphernalia”, a piece on Davis’ album “Miles in the Sky” released on Columbia Records in 1968. Benson clambered to the top of the Billboard Jazz chart with his release “Bad Benson”, and he also released a version of The Beatles’ 1969 album “Abbey Road” called “The Other Side of Abbey Road”. Around this time, Benson was also a musician for hire, playing many sessions for other aritsts, such as Freddie Hubbard and Stanley Turrentine. Benson started to reach brand new heights in 1976 with his album “Breezin’” which Benson earned himself a Grammy for. The album became the very first jazz release to go Platinum. He also recorded the original version of “The Greatest Love of All” for the 1977 biopic about Muhammad Ali called “The Greatest”. Whitney Houston popularized the song bringing it to a global audience. Quincy Jones produced and released Benson’s first pop album, “Give Me The Night”, which was released on August 9th 1980. The album put Benson in front of a much wider audience, becoming a global hit record and charting internationally. It peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200 charts with the title track becoming a Top 20 hit in over ten countries. The album later went Platinum. From the “Love Remembers” album in 1993 until “Absolute Benson” released in 2000, Benson had four consecutive number one jazz records. Throughout his career, he would maintain a balance with his albums maintaining a crossover status in popular music. Benson released the album “Inspiration: A Tribute to Nat King Cole” which featured household names such as Idina Menzel, Judith Hill and Till Bronner and then performed at the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro.
