Summary
Over the course of his fifty-year career, George Benson has performed for hundreds of millions of fans around the world, received ten Grammy Awards, and recorded with some of the most revered musicians of his era. And he has finally decided to tell his story. "Benson: The Autobiography" follows the musician's remarkable rise from the ghettos of Pittsburgh to the stages of Dubai, and everywhere in between. His tales of scuffling on the road with jazz legend Brother Jack McDuff, navigating his way through the recording studio with Miles Davis, and emerging as the first true (and truly successful) jazz/soul crossover artist will enthrall devotees of both music history and pop culture
Summary
Featuring an introduction by Bill Cosby, this autobiography of the singer, songwriter, composer and guitarist covers his 50-year career from his childhood in the ghettos of Pittsburgh to winning a National Endowment of the Arts Jazz Masters Award
