A TRIBUTE - Benson, Breezin' and the B3 Hammond Organ
Time 8:00 pm
In 1966, guitarist George Benson’s first CBS record “It’s Uptown It’s George Benson”, featuring organist Lonnie Smith, was released. George had recorded extensively with Lonnie Smith as well as organists Jack McDuff and Jimmy Smith, but by the time Benson’s Grammy award winning album Breezin’ was released, the Hammond B3 organ had given way to the electric piano and synthesizer. Now fifty years later, Fran Jare and Olaf de Shield have put together a tribute, retrospective, and reimagining of Benson’s career, featuring the B3 organ - spotlighting well known songs by Benson, as well as compositions by some of the great B3 masters. With Miles Foxx Hill on bass and Don Powrie on drums.
