George Benson 75 -- March 22, 2018
Happy birthday to guitarist George Benson.  He was a musical prodigy from the Hill District of Pittsburgh.  I remember hearing his stuff on KJAZ.  In the 1970s, he went for the crossover market with the album Breezin'.  I remember jazz purists complaining about his singing, but I didn't have a problem with it.
