For more than 40 years, the name of Chet Atkins has been associated with the finest Nashville-based finger style guitar sounds. Even those records he did not play on showed his influence. Yet his own artistic growth never ceased, as is evident in this second volume of Vestapol's chronological documentation of Chet's career. We see this gentle genius exploring the music of Bob Dylan (Don't Think Twice It's All Right), marching band composer John Phillip Sousa (Stars and Stripes Forever), pop standards (Lover Come Back) and progressive funk (Knuckle Buster). Chet's tonal palette draws varied colors from electric guitars, nylon-strung classics, and even a resonator guitar. Foremost in this collection are his traditional strengths as a tasteful soloist, but we also see him swap licks with the fiery Jerry Reed and Larry Carlton. The overall impression made by these performances is one of a master quietly demonstrating his continued primacy in his field and doing so with a calm assurance unabated by needless grandstanding.
