Another of Chet Atkins' attempts to break into the jazz world during his Columbia period, this recording veers well across the line into new age music — at this point in time, when a record opened with soothing ocean waves, followed by a gentle wash of synths, you could pretty much expect the new age to be lapping at your feet throughout. As he has with so many other genres, Atkins displays an instinctive grasp of this feel-good idiom. Yet even amidst the twittering sound effects and electronic drums of "Up in My Treehouse," Atkins' guitar always exudes dignity. Encouragingly, several of the tunes that Atkins composed himself are the most interesting ones on the disc.

Atkins' style grew out of his admiration for Merle Travis, expanding Travis' signature...
