George Benson was only 21 when, on May 1, 1964, he recorded his first album as a leader, the New Boss Guitar of George Benson. At that point, the guitarist had yet to become a huge name in jazz, although many of those who knew Benson agreed that he showed great potential. This is an impressive debut. The guitarist had developed a distinctive, recognizable sound on his instrument, and he plays with both feeling and technique on five Benson originals (including the sly Shadow Dancers, the exuberant Rock-A-Bye, and the earthy blues I Don't Know) as well as interpretations of Easy Living and Will You Still Be Mine. This album is historically important as well as rewarding. Shadow Dancers, The Sweet Alice Blues, I Don't Know, Just Another Sunday, Will You Still Be Mine?, Easy Living, Rock-A-Bye, My Three Sons
