My Conversation With George Benson

Tonight on PBS I'm joined by 10-time Grammy winner and National Endowment of the Arts Jazz Master, George Benson, whose new memoir, Benson: The Autobiography, has just been published. He's played with the greats, from Frank Sinatra to Stevie Wonder, and has a slew of number one hits to his credit, including his version of "On Broadway."

In this clip George talks about how that song was recorded -- live at a club on the Sunset Strip -- and how he knew, instantly, that it would be huge hit.
