What do you get when you mix Jill Scott, Al Jarreau and George Benson together? One of the best versions of the jazz classic “God Bless The Child” in the last decade. How can you go wrong with these music greats. Seven-time Grammy Award winning Al Jarreau has an endless list of albums and hit songs and collaborations throughout his long and successful career. Grammy-winning Jill Scott glides beautifully from R&B, Neo Soul to Jazz standards with such ease in her unique style and thunderous talent. George Benson is known for his famous guitar-vocal style which has made him a ten-time Grammy Award winning artist with one of the best songs in my opinion of all time “This Masquerade.”
Below is a video version of their recording of God Bless The Child which is available on iTunes on 2 different albums Jill Scott Collaborations and George Benson & Al Jarreau “Givin It Up”. Both albums are great! Preview them for yourself after listening to God Bless The Child, and download a copy. Hope that you enjoyed Sunday Jazz Corner this week.
