Smoke Notes

Ten times Grammy winner George Benson presents 'Songs and Stories' -- a collection of tunes penned by some of the most prolific and enduring songwriters of the last half-century. Some were written specifically for this new recording, such as Bill Withers' "A Telephone Call Away", Rod Temperton's "Family Reunion" and Lamont Dozier's "Living in High Definition"; while others, including James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight", Donny Hathaway's "Someday We'll All Be Free" and Tony Joe White's "Rainy Night in Georgia" were hand-picked by Benson for their ability to convey simple but universal truths about the human experience.

'Songs and Stories' was produced by John Burk and renowned bassist /composer / producer Marcus Miller. Benson, Miller, keyboardist Greg Phillinganes, guitarist Jubu and drummer John Robinson make up the core unit for the project. They were joined by special guests: guitarists Lee Ritenour, Steve Lukather, Wah Wah Watson and Norman Brown; vocalists Lalah Hathaway and Patti Austin; keyboardist David Paich; saxophonists Tom Scott and Gerald Albright along with several others.

The record captures George's ability to simply touch people through authentic lyrics and beautiful melody. On 'Songs and Stories', George Benson's musical artistry has perhaps never been on sharper display.

1. Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight
2. Family Reunion
3. Show Me the Love
