George Benson's Beyond the Blue Horizon, 1971 and his label debut with CTI is "one of Benson s best records, with 'So What'' and 'The Gentle Rain' ... lyrical but quite hard-bitten, and with an excellent rhythm section behind him, Benson finds room to stretch out" (The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings). AllMusic.com calls it " superb jazz session... a must-hear for all aficionados of Benson s guitar." For all those who long for George Benson who played masterfully and powerfully. For all those who love the masterful guitarist who had you playing air guitar if you were a non musician and had you picking up the needle and setting it back to cop his licks, this one's for you. The selections are straight up and cooking. Ron Carter and Jack De Johnette drive the rhythm section along throughout.
