This will a short Sunday Music Muse Day post. First, I wanted to show off this cool Yin-Yang Guitar t-shirt, from Me By Me Shop. It popped up on my Facebook feed and I couldn't resist it.
For for music this week, speaking of guitar, I picked up the first recording as a leader of George Benson, The New Boss Guitar of George Benson, with the Brother Jack McDuff Quartet. Many know George as the pop star beginning with his Breezin' album and the mega hit single "This Masquerade", but he of course was well-known in jazz circles. I like hearing his pure jazz outings. This is a true treasure as five of the seven tunes are Benson originals, with a extra cut, not on the original album. This is going to be fun to listen to over, and over, again.
Icarus. Oregon continues in that direction. This CD is the German ECM version, which is slightly disappointing in that there are four pages of liner notes in German, with no English translation. But the CD is still well worth listening to.
That's it for this week, I'm off to host a family cook out for my college bound son. Enjoy.
