        2008-09-13       White Rabbit / George Benson

of course you know George Benson got such big success by his big hit album "Breezin" in 1976.. but i like George Benson as one jazz guitarist... this album was released in 1971, before he changed his music to more Fusion and Black Contemporary... he was well known as a great jazz guitarist who was the best Wes Montgomery follower.
he covered Jefferson Airplane's song "White Rabbit", Mamas & Papas' song "California Dreaming" with spanish guitar!! i like this kind of "bad jazz" that is called by snobby jazz fans!! hahaha... this kind of jazz is a bit similar to Easy Listening music... yes, i love EasyListening music as "bad music" too!! why bad!? Herbie Habcock, Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Airto, Jay Berliner, etc... line-up looks so gorgeous as "bad jazz"!! (i don't like these musicians' music...) this is neither "cool" nor "warm" (i love Warne Marsh!!)... this is "lukewarm"!!
although i'm not interested in playing Bebap or kind of standard jazz, i'd like to play "lukewarm" in one day... but i'm sure i won't get any success like George Benson! hahaha...
