Daily Guitar Video: Today’s Guitar video is George Benson, a true master of jazz guitar. If you watch the Wes Montgomery video I posted a few days ago, you’ll hear the influence.
I just happened to be at this particular concert in Sevilla, Spain in 1991 as I was working in Gibraltar and took a week off for my birthday to attend a “Legends of the Guitar” festival. I had lousy seats, but noticed the first two rows were empty during the first two nights. I went up to the front and nobody questioned me. I ended up with great seats for an amazing array of players.
