On Friday, February 16, at the Adrienne Arsht Center, Knight Concert Hall, FANS enjoyed “A Night of Breezin’ and Greatest Hits,” with one of the greatest artists in jazz history, 10-time Grammy winner and NEA Jazz Master George Benson. He is a versatile musician whose skills find him crossing between straight-ahead jazz, smooth jazz and contemporary R & B.
Along the five-decade continuum of his career, he has been a jazz guitarist of unparalleled chops, and a vocalist with emotional range and sophistication. He regards himself as an entertainer in the broadest sense of the word — a singer of songs, a spinner of tales.
FANS were also invited to a pre-concert reception.
Dinner before the show was at Mignonette seafood/oyster bar. This successful, jazzy event was hosted by Paula Finkle and Maxene Posman.
