The George Benson Collection is the 1981 compilation album by American jazz guitarist and singer George Benson. When released on CD, it omitted a song from the vinyl and cassette pressing, "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" as compact discs were unable to hold any more than 74 minutes at the time. It could fit now but it's not here. Thank you.

George Benson is simply one of the greatest guitarists in jazz history, but he is also an amazingly versatile musician, and that frustrates to no end critics who would paint him into a narrow bop box. He can play in just about any style from swing to bop to R&B to pop with supreme taste, a beautiful rounded tone, terrific speed, a marvelous sense of logic in building solos, and, always, an unquenchable urge to swing. His inspirations may have been Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery and he can do dead-on impressions of both but his style is completely his own. Not only can he play lead brilliantly, he is also one of the best rhythm guitarists around, supportive to soloists and a dangerous swinger, particularly in a soul-jazz format.

George Benson is a unique figure in jazz, considered by many to be one of the best bebop-influenced guitarists since Wes Montgomery, while, simultaneously, loved by smooth jazz and pop fans for hits such as "On Broadway," and "This Masquerade," two songs that also feature his vocals. This "Jazz Moods" disc concentrates on Benson's instrumental side, though he does sing on the last track, "Hold on I'm Comin'." On this 10-track collection of tunes, mostly taken from his 1970s catalog, Benson funks up standards such as "Take Five" and "Take the 'A' Train," and offers extended jams on Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" and the Mamas & the Papas' "California Dreamin'." Additionally, he turns in smoking hot, swinging versions of Miles Davis's "So What" and Benson's own composition, "Clockwise." Benson's blazing solos on these songs reminds listeners why he is so worshipped by fans and fellow guitarists worldwide.

What an interesting album and what a great cross-sectional study of George Benson's evolution from young R&B based jazz-guitarist to easy jazz-pop phenomenom. Recording quality is generally good, except for 1-2 live songs. The listener can obviously take their pick which they prefer, but there's no denying that while George is best known for his Breezin and other albums from the 80's, he had a real eclectic body of work behind him that established him as a jazz leader. If you're one of those types who cry, "Hey he sold out", I'd counter that he brought the best of jazz to the pop world. The songs Breezin' and On Broadway are loads of fun, simply because they are well written and polished performances.

When George Benson was making these recordings in the 1970s, he was considered a talented jazz guitarist who had crossed over to pop-soul vocals. While there's certainly pure pop and an emphasis on vocals here, there's also something else: smooth jazz. Included are classics of the genre like the instrumental "Breezin'" and the King Pleasure vocalese "Moody's Mood." Benson's hit versions of songs like "On Broadway" and "This Masquerade" are memorable, too, with him singing scat in unison with his guitar. In Benson's hands, Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" becomes a quasi-symphonic instrumental with touches of flamenco, and the vocal duets "Love All the Hurt Away" with Aretha Franklin and "We Got the Love" with Chaka Khan are solid soul ballads. –Adam Rains
