George Benson Greatest Hits Of All Jazz Music CD Review - Articles Surfing


Greatest Hits Of All is the latest release from Jazz Sensation George Benson, and is another great one by this talented musician.

This CD will grab your attention right from the start with This Masquerade and won't let go until the very last note of the very last song Standing Together, which by the way is another great track.

Greatest Hits Of All has a nicely varied, mix of 19 tracks that are very well written songs by this clearly talented artist. With many of the songs displaying a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only imagine are him own real life experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions like love, heartbreak, pain, failed relationships and unattainable romance. They're all here.

Listen to this CD and I believe you'll find there's not much to dis-like about it. The songs are inspired, the production is simply outstanding, and George Benson is clearly in top form. So much so that if you're even mildly into Jazz music you'll enjoy this CD.

While the entire CD is really very good the truly standout tunes are track 3 - The Greatest Love Of All, track 9 - Turn Your Love Around, and track 15 - I Just Wanna Hang Around You.

My SmoothLee Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 11 - Never Give Up On A Good Thing. This is a great track!
