I popped into a local musical instrument store this weekend and a couple of gents were in the guitar section trying out all the Martins. I am sure one of them picked up a D-45 and started to play ‘White Rabbit’. The 1972 album White Rabbit was George Benson’s second CTI Records project. Full of Spanish-flavoured moodiness, the title track is a workout cover of Jefferson Airplane’s hit. But this was a CTI showcase and all parties get the chance to shine. The lineup was formidable: Ron Carter on bass, Billy Cobham on drums, Hubert Laws on flute, Airto Moreira on percussion and Herbie Hancock on piano.
