Guitar Man is a studio album by George Benson. The album was released by Concord Jazz on October 4, 2011 Guitar Man. Studio album by. George Benson.

Guitar Man, George Benson's second offering for Concord stands in contrast to 2009's Songs and Stories, though is not an about face. While the earlier album focused on Benson's proven, decades-long formula for pop and smooth jazz - a group of of easy grooving tunes featuring his silky voice and shimmering guitar work - this set focuses (primarily) on Benson as a contemporary jazz guitarist.

Guitar Man. George Benson brings his instrumental and vocal prowess to the fore once again in his newest album Guitar Man. Guitar Man is a 12-song collection that includes a mix of jazz and pop standards - some in a combo setting and some solo, but all of them tied together seamlessly by Benson's soulful and exploratory signature sound.

His current album, Guitar Man, is supposed to signal a return to the jazz fold but in large venues like this, commercial factors also apply. Backed by a meaty, well-drilled group featuring two keyboards, bass, rhythm guitar and drums, Benson paced the evening cleverly, delivering a judicious mixture of jazz standards and the big-selling lurve-songs his fans demand. George Benson will be touring in support of Guitar Man. The live shows will feature Benson’s masterful guitar playing, and Benson and his band will be performing classic George Benson hits along with an acoustic presentation of a few songs from Guitar Man.
