George Benson gets back to Americana basics on Walking to New Orleans, the jazz guitar legend´s tribute to both piano-pounding hit machine Fats Domino and the original rock guitar hero and poet, Chuck Berry.
Walking to New Orleans is Benson´s first recording since 2013´s Inspiration: A Tribute to Nat King Cole, but it couldn´t be more different. Where Benson embellished Cole´s cool tunes with lush orchestral arrangements, Walking to New Orleans came about by hunkering down in a Music Row studio, with a quartet of first-call Nashville cats. This is Benson´s 45th album, and few sound as loose-limbed and flat-out fun.
