"In Flight" Soars

"I first became aware of George Benson through the "Breezin" album, and his lovely rendition of "This Masquerade." I loved that album a lot, and as a senior in high school, I was starting to build my album collection at the time, focusing on jazz music. When this record was released, I didn't think George could top what he did on "Breezin." We had an album radio station here in L.A. that focused on R&B and jazz artists, KUTE 102 FM. One of the first tracks they played from this album was "Everything Must Change." When I heard George's rendition, I set out to purchase this album as soon as I had saved up enough money. This is one of George's best albums, where he's reaching out to broaden his audience, yet introducing the new converts to some of the best fusion jazz played in the late 70's. To me he followed up "Breezin" with a product that definetly "takes off." Anyone who loves George Benson needs to have this album in their collection. Thanks for letting me share my feelings about George and this album."
Fly Away With In Flight

"After the mega success of Breezin', George Benson had a tough act to follow. With 1977's In Flight, he continues in the Breezin' vein with another sterling collection of jazz-r&b tunes. "Nature Boy" is a solid take on the old standard, but he really shines on the cover of War's "The World Is A Ghetto", in which he places some inspired riffs, and the beautiful "Valdez In The Country". In Flight again brought him into the top ten, but it, of course, failed to match the success of Breezin'."
Six tracks, six gems.

"If you look for earlier Benson masterpieces, I can only recommend any of the trilogy Breezin-Livin inside your love-In flight. This in flight starts with a brilliant cover version of the "Nature Boy", and goes on for five more tracks of high quality (listen closely to rythmic "the world is a ghetto" and "Valdez in the country"). One of the Benson albums you must have, if you are one of his fans, though the sound may sound a bit "old" (but remember this is almost 25 years old !)"
