About the Album
“Bensonite” is a nod to one of Weston’s main jazz guitar influences. An infectious groover colored by Lazar’s churning percussion work, it has Horner dealing on electric piano, affecting a ‘70s Herbie Hancock Headhunters vibe as Weston delivers some of his most impassioned licks. This energetic number closes with a lively batucada jam that has the sound of cuica mingling with sordu, repinique, tamborim and assorted Brazilian percussion. “The core of this piece started with George Benson in mind but I think I morphed during the process to a bit of Larry Carlton style,” says Weston. “It’s a fun song to play, particularly the samba outro.
