U-Nam Working on George Benson Tribute
French guitarist, U-Nam is putting the finishing touches on his latest album, Week End in L.A. (A Tribute to George Benson), due out this spring. He's joined on the project by an all-star line-up of artists including George Duke, Phil Perry, Paul Jackson, Jr. and Patrice Rushen, among others. U-Nam hit number one on the charts with his take on the Crusaders tune "Street Life" and is not bashful when he talks about his admiration and respect for George Benson, calling him his 'favorite artist'. For his part, Benson has high praise for U-Nam too, saying, "It's great to have a new voice on the guitar scene; one that is loaded with energy and excitement."
