Breezin' with Benson

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 5 February 1977

"HE (MILES Davis) was one of the first smart guys in this industry. I love him a lot and every time I speak to him I learn something. I was at his place one day and he poured out words of wisdom. He told me... he says... 'George, go git yourself a big amp and play loud. Jimi Hendrix did it'... and you know something? He's got a point."
