George Benson - Body Talk


Year : 1973
Label : CTI
Genre : Jazz
Style : Jazz Funk, Guitar Jazz,

A new direction is taken with this third recording influenced by the James Brown' sound which he decides to introduce in his music. To obtain the desired 'groove', he recruits Pee Wee Ellis from The JB's who arrange three of five tracks and composed with him the openning track, Dance. Recorded with the same rhythm section as Beyond The Blue Horizon (except Harold Mabern who replaces Clarence Palmer), the formation consists of Gary King, percussionist Mobutu, Frank Foster, his friend & sideman Earl Klugh, all surrounded by a horn section including John Faddis. Produced by Creed Taylor, arranged and conducted by Pee Wee Ellis. All tracks composed by George Benson except When Love Has Grown by Donny Hattaway.
