The new track is part of a performance recorded in 2019 at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, an intimate, 250-seat venue in London. The upcoming release, Weekend In London, is due out in November. Benson has been recognized as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment of the Arts, seen as the nation's highest honor in jazz.
