It's safe to say that Chet Atkins invented what we know as the country guitar style. But this brilliantly programmed retrospective shows that Atkins was equally fluent in scores of other styles. There's not a dud to be found on GUITAR LEGEND: THE RCA YEARS. Each of these tracks, recorded between 1947 and 1978, is a delight. And Atkins makes it all look so easy.
GUITAR LEGEND? is nothing but highlights, though Atkins' stunning solo-guitar transcription of Dave Brubeck's signature piano tune "Take Five" stands out. So does "Centipede Boogie," featuring an up-the-neck solo that scores of rockabilly guitarists (and later George Harrison) were quick to appropriate. And the lightly swinging, tongue-in-cheek instrumental "Satan's Doll" suggests something a diabolical Duke Ellington might have composed.
Artist Overview
Among fingerstyle country guitar players, perhaps only Merle Travis can rival Chet Atkins, whose distinctive sound defined an entire generation of Nashville country. Atkins has played an equally important role as a record producer. As RCA's chief Nashville producer in the '50s and '60s, Atkins oversaw sessions for Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, Jim Reeves, Don Gibson, and countless others. He was one of the chief architects of the polished country style that came to be known as the "Nashville sound," but his own productions were more tasteful and appealing than those for which the genre is frequently lambasted. Atkins remained active into the '90s, but succumbed to cancer in 2001.
