produced by Tommy Lipuma recorded and mixed by Al Schmitt

recorded in Hollywood, sept, oct 1997

Recording live at Los Angeles' Roxy club - then a showcase for many of the hottest acts in pop - was just the tonic that Benson and his Breezin' band needed on this often jumping album. With unusually lively crowds (for a record industry watering hole) shouting encouragement, the band gets deep into the four-on-the-floor funk and Benson digs in hard, his rhythmic instincts on guitar sharp as ever. The balance between vocals and instrumentals is about even - George's voice sounds more throaty and soul oriented than before - and amidst the new material, there is a revisit to a favored CTI-era instrumental, the lovely "Ode To A Kudu." This album also introduced "On Broadway," an extended stomping version of the Drifters' hit that has become Benson's climactic showstopper to this day. The only superfluous element is the after-the-fact addition of Nick De Caro's string synthesizer backdrop; the real Claus Ogerman-arranged thing would have been preferable if we must have strings.
