GEORGE BENSON RELEASES NEW TRACK 'HAVANA MOON'


Legendary Jazz Guitarist George Benson will be releasing an new video for the classic Chuck Berry track Havana Moon. His new album Walking To New Orleans will be released on April 26th via Provogue/Mascot Label Group. The iconic musician pays tribute to Rock & Roll pioneers Fats Domino and Chuck Berry.

Walking to New Orleans is Benson's first recording since 2013’s Inspiration: A Tribute to Nat King Cole. But where Benson embellished Cole's cool tunes with lush orchestral arrangements, Walking To New Orleans found Benson hunkering down in Ocean Way Studios on Music Row with a quartet of first-call Nashville cats: drummer and music director Greg Morrow, guitarist Rob McNelley, pianist Kevin McKendree, and bassist Alison Prestwood. Producer Kevin "The Caveman" Shirley (Journey, John Hiatt, Iron Maiden) was at the controls.

Walking to New Orleans is George Benson's 45th album, and few sound quite as loose-limbed and flat-out fun as this one. "We did have us a ball making this record," he admits.
