    Recording information: Van Gelder Studios (11/1971).
    Arranger: Don Sebesky.
    Recorded in three days in 1971, this CTI recording has been lauded as one of George Benson's best releases. A stellar cast of musicians--all in their best form--are featured on WHITE RABBIT, including Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Hubert Laws, and Benson's then-young protege, Earl Klugh. Arranger Don Sebesky creates some of the most creative twists on the popular songs of the time such as "White Rabbit" and "California Dreamin," as well as on Hector Villa-Lobos' "Little Train."
    The recording has a Spanish flavor throughout, as well as a mysterious, psychedelic tinge reminiscent of the time it was recorded. The players put forth the kind of energy that is rarely found in recordings. Benson's guitar playing here is the stuff that has made him famous.
