Benson's backing band from Breezin', still set in its funk mode, is intact, and Claus Ogerman again contributes gentle orchestral cushions. The two instrumentals, particularly Donny Hathaway's "Valdez in the Country," prove that Benson remained a brilliantly inventive melodist on guitar, in full possession of his powers. Yet there is every indication here that Benson was set upon becoming primarily a pop star.

The discography of George Benson consists of thirty-six studio albums and five live albums on Prestige Records, Columbia Records, Verve Records, A&M Records, CTI Records, Warner Bros. Records, GRP Records and Concord Records, as well as two music DVDs. Note: this discography consists only original releases. Reissues of previously released albums are not included into this discography.

In Flight was the first time the UK public really became aware of George Benson. A former child prodigy, Benson had been recording consistently since the early 60s, breaking through by playing with organist "Brother" Jack McDuff. With his Wes Montgomery-style improvisations and unmistakable sound, Benson became one of the most respected and inventive jazz guitarists. His string of recordings for Verve and Creed Taylor’s CTI earned him a place in the hearts of many aficionados. His 1976 album, Breezin’, changed all that. Breezin’ became a surprise N. album in the US, and Warner Bros. As a result, 1977’s In Flight had four vocal performances and just two instrumentals – the highest vocal quotient of any Benson release to date. In Flight is, to all intents and purposes, the same album as Breezin’.

In Flight is a 1977 studio album by George Benson and was released on the Warner Bros Records label It was certified Platinum by the RIAA. Phil Upchurch – rhythm guitar, bass 5, 6. Stanley Banks – bass 1-4.
