Anyone who despaired about the total lack of instrumentals on
Warners’ unrepresentative The Best of George Benson will be
overjoyed by this sequel, Best of George Benson: The Instrumentals,
which contains nothing but instrumentals (that may have been the
game plan all along). Admittedly, the instrumental pickings in the
Warner catalog are slimmer than, say, those for Benson’s pre-«This
Masquerade» recordings on CBS/CTI and A&M/Verve, and the style
is often slanted toward the kind of easy jazz heard on «The Wave»
radio format. But Benson could still create funky fireworks with
his guitar on tunes like «Dinorah, Dinorah,» «Affirmation,» and
«Weekend in L.A.,» and Benson’s off-the-cuff fluency is shown off
to stunning effect all alone on «Tenderly.» The range of albums is
more inclusive than that of the earlier set, spanning Benson’s long
Warner period and even reaching out to the funky-butt title track
from his first GRP album, That’s Right. If you combine this album
and the vocal Best Of collection, you’ll get an excellent summary
of George Benson over a span of 20 years.
