Benton was not only a wonderful musician, but also a great person to be with. The time that I spent sitting with him on his verandah listening to him talk about music and the musicians he had known will stay with me for ever, as will the times that I heard him play. We are lucky that so much of his music was recorded. My thoughts are with his family and many, many friends.
