"Many fans of the Benson of the seventies are horrified with this man's latest works. I would rather say that his two latest albums show a strong recovery, after changing of record label and several years of "dryness". He's much into singing, but also plays the guitar the way he has always done it, setting a trend, as said by other reviewers. And he definitely is looking in new directions, since he was planning to record some things with latin musicians for his next album (or at least, that is what he said on an interview in Spain). "Poquito spanish" should therefore only be an appetizer of future recordings.Is Benson a Jazz artist ? ("C-smooth" !) Is benson a pop artist ? ("Standing together", "All I know" !) Is he a funk man ? ("Keep rollin" !) Well, he is probably a bit of everything in this album ("You can do it baby" !), and makes a fusion of it (word which, according to his words, is all right, as long as it doesn't go with "confusion").Just misses the 5 stars because a couple of tracks are a bit too "pasty"."

"I'm a young head who isn't really into too much jazz, but everytime i'm studing or doing something where i have to concentrate I like to listen to jazz. This CD is a must have. Most times I only listen to jazz that's a remake of a song I already know, but this one is different. For all those who like and don't like jazz, give this a listen. it will have you hooked by the time you hear the second song on the CD. get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Great, Great, Listening CD!

"This CD reminds me of "Benson Back To The Basics". I could listen to this CD over and over again because of the wonderful versatility in choice of material, musicians and just overall listening appeal. A must have for Georgie Benson fans."
