When I received the new version of Turn Your Love Around I immediately downloaded it eager to hear it. First, I’m a longtime George Benson fan, even before working with him briefly while at Warner Bros Records. Secondly, this is my favorite Benson song and third, but not finally, it’s a live recording!
There aren’t many live performance albums recorded these days, so to hear George Benson Weekend In London is quite refreshing. George is still in good voice and if I was hearing this song for the first time I would fall in love with it all over again. I believe you will too when you hear it on Midday Jazz with RivaBlue on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
