Absolute Benson is an enhanced studio album by jazz musician George Benson. Taking a tip from 1999's pop-man-of-the-year Carlos Santana, Benson goes Latin on this release. The album was released by GRP/Verve Records on May 23, 2000.

George Benson is well embarked on the third phase of his career, and Absolute Benson, though unfortunately titled (it sounds like a compilation, but is actually an album of new recordings) is another in a series of consistently excellent CDs that characterize it. Benson excited traditional jazz fans in the 1960s and early '70s with his albums of inventive guitar playing on Columbia, A&M, and CTI, records that made him seem the logical successor to Wes Montgomery. Then, in 1976, he moved to Warner Bros.
