Benson is a double threat, a brilliant guitarist who is also a gifted vocalist. Although he enjoyed success throughout the '60s and '70s, Benson really broke through as a mainstream pop artist in 1976, when he released the platinum-selling BREEZIN'. The gorgeous ballad "This Masquerade" was the big hit, but the lively title track and the swinging "Six to Four" will be just as familiar to smooth-jazz fans. The album also includes the gently grooving "Affirmation" and two lovely, string-accented tunes, "So This Is Love" and "Lady." BREEZIN' is a particular milestone for an artist who continues to be one of music's true giants.
