George Benson Biography
Appreciated as both a musician and performer by millions, George Benson has always
had the dual role of expert improviser and vibrant entertainer. He has consistently
placed his keenly discerning art in the service of a rousing good time.
Rounding out his singular approach with sly, seductive rhythm and blues, he's earned himself an
impeccable reputation as one of music's most enterprising and engaging stars.
Few might have predicted that striking level of stardom some forty years ago, when
Benson was a fledgling guitarist working the corner pubs of his native Pittsburgh. That's
where his yen to please a crowd was born. "I was an entertainer first," he says proudly "As a kid I sang, danced, and played the ukulele in a nightclub. As my career has
progressed, I've had the pleasure of playing with the baddest jazz cats on the planet. But that doesn't change my desire to entertain folks. That's really who I am."
Kenny G Biography
In a recording career that spans almost three decades and 23 albums, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has grafted elements of R&B, pop and Latin to a jazz foundation solidifying his reputation as the premiere artist in contemporary jazz.
Since the early 80's, his combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of
more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the US alone) and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard's
contemporary jazz chart. Kenny G has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business
during his legendary career, ranging from Michael Bolton to Weezer to Whitney Houston to Katy Perry.
On Jan. 27, Grammy award-winning saxophonist Kenny G released his fourteenth studio album Brazilian
Nights via Concord Records. The ten-song set, Kenny's tribute to the 'masters' of Bossa Nova, is a
mixture of classics and Kenny G originals. To celebrate the release, Kenny appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, TODAY, Bloomberg, HuffPost Live and MSNBC's Morning Joe, among others.
