When an artist had the type of career that someone like the American Guitar Champion of R&B, Funk, Jazz and Soul George Benson has, at the very respectable age of 77, one would consider perhaps slowing down considerably, about making new records or performing live. But that is not, in the slightest, the case of this formidable artist that, even at this stage of his career and personal life, does not stop to amaze audiences of any age range, thanks to his Guitar skills, technique, vocal strength and an overall amount of unimaginable talent.

After a studio album like the slightly under par 2019's Walking To New Orleans, there was the general feeling that Benson was still enjoying making music, but wanting at the same time also to explore unfamiliar new musical highways, with questionable, at times, results. There were, therefore, huge expectations about what Benson's next move was going to be in 2020 and the Old Guitar Master has certainly not betrayed said expectations at all.

Benson's new release is, to say the least, a truly spectacular live performance called Weekend In London, recorded in 2019 at the Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London, UK, where a very restricted amount of people were invited to this very special one-off event, where Benson, supported by a true R&B Orchestra on stage, showed still an incredible artistic stamina at every imaginable level, as a guitarist and as a singer too.
