Chet Atkins' 1987 instrumental release SAILS finds the guitarist in a pop/jazz setting. Blurring the lines between his country roots and a jazzy sensibility, Atkins creates music that's both ethereal and introspective.
There's a slick patina of sound supported not only by Atkins' guitar but also by keyboards, strings, horns and percussion; the result is a rich and diverse layering of chords and rhythms combined with Atkins' lyrical guitar work. Standout tracks include the reflective ballad, "Love Letter," and "Laffin' at Life," the latter of which features Atkins' trademark fingerpicking style.
