This Bobby Womack-penned tune is the title track from Bensonís 1976 breakthrough album Breeziní. Cheery, catchy, and, yes, breezy, it remains a radio staple to this day. Benson doesnít sing or scat on this track; instead, he lets his guitar articulate the melody with a little help from some flute-like keyboard accompaniment. A delightful tune thatís sure to brighten your day.
