    Here is George Benson and some well known horn players and drummer. Who is the bassist?

    Stanley Banks has been GB's bassist for a very long time. The guy in this video doesn't look a lot like him but he's credited at the end. I actually met Stanley in NY. He doesn't look like he does in the video anymore. When I met him, he looked more like this.

    There is a tambourine by his feet, always a giveaway that it is Stanley, I love his playing.
