Overview

That's Right

George Benson may have changed labels with That's Right, but he didn't change his approach. Like his other '90s albums, That's Right is jazz-inflected quiet-storm soul. It's quietly funky and always grooving, whether he's playing a light uptempo number or a silky ballad. As always, Benson's tone is smooth and supple -- it's a pleasure to hear him play, even if the material he has selected doesn't always showcase his ample skills. In fact, the unevenness in material is the very thing that keeps That's Right from being on par with Benson's early '80s contemporary soul records. Although the sound is right, and Benson's heart is clearly in it, he just doesn't have quite enough memorable melodies to make the album thoroughly engaging. Still, the joy that is readily apparent within his performance makes That's Right a worthy acquisition for fans of Benson's latter-day recordings.

For the jazz guitar fan, or just jazz for that matter, this is an example of creativity, virtuosity and imagination. You cant help but jump and jive while listening to 'Song for My Brother', it makes me smile inside...George's arpeggios and tonal connections are exquisite, along with his speed and clarity. His other songs exemplify the great technique and artistry of a truly great American treasure. But what else would you expect from such a fabulous artist. Long live king George.
