Bad Benson is a 1974 studio album by American guitarist George Benson, released on CTI Records. Take Five" (Paul Desmond) - 7:08. Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams" (Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman, Johnny Mandel) - 2:56. My Latin Brother" (George Benson) - 6:50. No Sooner Said Than Done" (Phil Upchurch) - 5:59.

Preceding Breezin', his crossover smash for Warner in 1976, Bad Benson shows the guitarist still hanging on to his Wes Montgomery roots in places while stretching his soul-jazz persona into even funkier arenas. Arranged by Don Sebesky, Bad Benson is a collection of delicious, varied, and sometimes confusing choices

Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams, 02:56. No Sooner Said Than Done, 05:59.
