  1. Stumbled across a Parkwood label LP by saxophonist George Benson, George Benson Swings & Swings & Swings. Nice stuff, Like Stitt he played tenor and alto and I hear Stitt and Hodges as probably his biggest influences. This fabulous performance is from a year ago when he was 87! More vids on youtube from the same gig, and there are some other LPs on Parkwood and a full album of duets with the much younger pianist, Glenn Tucker, available at CDBaby: https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/georgesaxbenson2 I am having trouble copying and pasting but I am sure Mark Stryker can append his newspaper piece about Benson that he shared with me. Anyone know this guy? If you see the Parkwood releases, pounce!
