George Benson playing Affirmation

https://youtube.com/watch?v=jKXXzJhhlhQ

At a recent gig I was asked to  play ‘Affirmation’ as played by George Benson. I had the original album (Breezin’) but I wanted to find a live version, to see if he played a different arrangement with a live band. So, as you do, I searched on Youtube for the tune…check out the video above. I don’t think it can get better than this in terms of Timing, Groove, Technique, Soul…a great example to follow regardless if you like this genre or not.
