New Album in the Making

I'm recording a new Nat King Cole tribute album with an orchestra and would love for you to be a part of it!

Welcome to my PledgeMusic page.

I’ve had the idea to record an album featuring the music of Nat King Cole for quite some time now. Thanks to my long history with Concord Records, together we arranged an amazing 42 piece orchestra to make a record I’m really passionate about.

Since this is a very unique and special project to me and I am blessed by many good friends who have supported me along the way, I wanted to give my fans a chance to take part in something unique and special, too. So, instead of the traditional ‘making of’ DVD or a few extra bonus tracks, Concord Records and I have teamed up with PledgeMusic to give you an opportunity to participate in some exclusive offers only available here.

I will personally autograph CDs and Vinyl. You can get your name listed in the album artwork! You can even purchase my newly developed Ibanez LGB300 signature guitar which I’ll personally sign for you over a Skype chat!

A lot of these offerings are limited edition and aren’t even printed yet, so all you have to do for now is ‘Pledge’ and your credit card won’t be charged until the bar at the top of the page hits 100%. And just for Pledging, you’ll gain access to behind the scenes information on the making of the album including exclusive videos and updates along the way.

And I want you to know that a portion of all proceeds will be donated to the victims of Hurricane Sandy through our friends at Music Cares.

Thank you for being a part of this special project and I can’t wait for you to hear this record!

- George

5% of funds
5% of all money raised will go to MusiCares Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.

A high-quality printed transcription of George’s improvised guitar solo on the song “I’m Going to Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter” – the 15 bar solo was transcribed by George’s Musical Director, Randy Waldman. Transcriptions of George’ s solos are rare due to his unique and challenging note choices that make his style difficult to transcribe, but Randy took the challenge on this tune and you can now own a rare, limited edition, high-quality print of the solo.

Printed on high-weight, acid free archival paper and signed by George Benson – this package also comes with a CD copy of the album. Shipping included in the price.

Package includes an Ibanez LGB30 (Manufactured in China) signed by George, as well as George’s custom Fender amplifier and a set of George’s custom Thomastik-Infeld guitar strings. Of course this also comes with a signed copy of the album in your choice of CD or Vinyl.

The LBG30 is designed to be a more affordable, Chinese made version of the LGB300 flagship model. It still features Custom Super 58 pickups, ebony fingerboard, spruce top, maple back and sides and the classic Vintage Yellow Sunburst finish.

The LGB30 maintains the quality the Ibanez George Benson line is known for, but makes it more affordable to a wider range of musicians.
