This summer will see the release of Benson: The Autobiography. Benson: The Autobiography follows Lil' Georgie Benson from his remarkable rise from the ghettos of Pittsburgh to the stages of Dubai, and everywhere in between. George’s tales of scuffling on the road with jazz legend Brother Jack McDuff, navigating his way through the recording studio with Miles Davis, and emerging as the first true (and truly successful) jazz/soul crossover artist will enthrall devotees of both music history and pop culture. This long-awaited book allows readers to meet one of the most beloved, prolific, and bestselling musicians of any era.
