White Rabbit

George Benson - White Rabbit

On White Rabbit CTI-boss and producer Creed Taylor placed George Benson in lavish Spanish arrangements by Don Sebesky to the greatest success. Titel track 'White Rabbit' remains strong even without the lyrics, while 'California Dreaming' with its Andalusian harmonies sounds laidback and warm. On closer 'El Mar', Benson comes through with some truly inspiring playing. This was Benson's first release on CTI (Beyond The Blue Horizon was released on its subsidiary Kudu Records) and the debut of guitarist Earl Klugh. Herbie Hancock adds his magic touch to the Rhodes, as does Ron Carter on bass. White Rabbit is yet another prime example of the high standard CTI Records set for the musicians of the day.
