Despite this recognition of the artistic community, his albums do not deserve the success and it was not until the mid-seventies rewarded for at fair value. George Benson has directed his music to jazz-funk, closer to the tastes of the public and the height of his career will be reached with the album "Give Me The Night" with the tube to make eponymous worldwide in 1980.
