CORAL GABLES, FL (JUNE 4, 2013) - Over 40 musicians from the University of Miami Frost School of Music's Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra are featured on today's Concord Music Group's release of the legendary George Benson's latest album: Inspiration: A Tribute to Nat King Cole. The Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra is a highly selective ensemble that provides a new spectrum of artistic creation and exploration, and was chosen by Benson to record this release. The artistic director is Terence Blanchard.

The sessions with the HMI Orchestra were recorded at the Hit Factory/Criteria Studios in North Miami.

After four years of touring and developing "An Unforgettable Tribute to Nat King Cole," including a Jazz Roots concert at the Adrienne Arsht Center accompanied by the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra, Benson considers this recording one of the most meaningful of his career and is a testament to the spirit of Cole's timeless body of work.

Highlights on the album performed by the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra include an adaptation of Nelson Riddle's arrangement of "Just One of Those Things," with a signature Benson vocal/guitar scat solo, and Benson's reading of the original chart of "Nature Boy," which he previously interpreted and made and a pop hit in the late '70s.
