George Benson ‎– White Rabbit. Label: CTI Records ‎– CTI 6015. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue, Gatefold. What an album! Featuring an all star cast of musicians who all are masters in their own rite! The featured cut white rabbit is wonderfully orchestrated by Don Sebesky as are the cover songs.

White Rabbit is an album by George Benson.

For George Benson's second CTI project, producer Creed Taylor and arranger Don Sebesky successfully place the guitarist in a Spanish-flavored setting full of flamenco flourishes, brass fanfares, moody woodwinds and such. The idea works best on "California Dreamin'" (whose chords are based on Andalusian harmonies), where, driven by Jay Berliner's exciting Spanish rhythm guitar, Benson comes through with some terrifically inspired playing

Audio CD, October 25, 1990. One of George's great Album releases. His soloing has the flavor of a jazz trumpet player along with interesting compositions. One person found this helpful.
